Photograph of the Jami Masjid at Junagadh in Gujarat, taken by the travelling commercial photographer F. Nelson in the 1890s from the Lee-Warner Collection: 'Photographs of Junagadh'. The Princely State of Junagadh was founded in 1735 by Muhammed Sher Khan Babi (r.1748-1758) and was ruled by his descendents, the Muslim Babi dynasty. The mosque was built in the late 19th century and is situated next to the maqbara tombs of the state’s rulers. They are the most unusual examples of 19th century Islamic architecture in Gujarat and the mosque has similar stylistic features. This view shows its arcaded façade, minarets and cluster of onion domes.
