Photograph of Miyan Khan Chishti's Mosque at Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India. The mosque was built in 1465 by Malik Makhsud Wazir for the Chishti Shaikh Miyan Khan. The style of the mosque combines both Hindu and Muslim elements. A number of small domes surround the three main domes. The facade has a lofty main entrance flanked by two ornately carved minarets with rounded tops.
