Photograph of Nawab Shujat Khan's Mosque at Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India. There is an inscription on the qibla wall that gives the date 1695. The facade has five pointed arches leading into five bays divided by piers. There are two slender octagonal minarets and three bulbous domes. The walls and piers have a marble dado with white plaster above. The tomb or maqbara of Shujat Khan is located north of the mosque and is set in an enclosure. This view is from the ablution tank in the court looking towards the sanctuary.
