Photographer's Note

Nanital jama masjid located in Mallital was built in 1882 during the British era for muslim soldiers serving in the British army. It became the place where the Muslim army men gathered for the friday prayers. Since then, it has been an active mosque where namaaz is offered to the supreme Lord. Over the main entrance one can see Arabic inscriptions. It is a white marble stoned mosque. The most notable feature is the mihrab where a niche shows the direction towards Mecca. It was beautifully reconstructed in 2004-2005 (under anjuman islamia, raza club). Just adjacent to the mosque there is a small cricket ground where local matches are held. Unbelievers cannot enter the mosque. Source : tripadvisor
