Photographer's Note

It appears that all of the architect/builders of Gujarati mosques wanted to ensure that the minars did not collapse. Consequently, these were erected mainly in the form of a buttress, and then sculpted. Probably most of the sculptors at Champaner were brought from Ahmadabad, where a distinct syle of design had emerged in the 15th century. Niches were filled with curving branches, much like vines with leaves, to relieve the boredom of the plain sandstone.
