Photograph of the the trabeate fa├žade of the Jami Masjid at Sidhpur in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. The Jami Masjid at Sidhpur is constructed from three shrines, formed by rearranging the Hindu pillars to a position suitable for a mosque. The roof of the central part is higher than the two wings. There is a central mihrab and two smaller mihrabs in each of the wings occupying the position of the doors of the old shrines. This is a view of the facade with the ablution tank in the foreground.
