The architect of this magnificent mosque was a man whose fore fathers worked on Taj Mahal, he had come all the way from India to work on this mosque.

Can anyone guess where in Karachi this is ?

    “he had come all the way from India to work on this mosque.”

    At the time it was all India. He merely went from one part of it to another.

    I donot think this masjid is in Karachi. Because according to the legend. All people who worked on the taj mahal were killed so they could not replicate the work.


  14. turab (unregistered) on November 18th, 2006 @ 3:12 pm

    @yoyo, if you read carefully, the mosque’s designer’s forefathers!! long shot but still a connection exists…..

    As none of you have yet guessed correctly, here is a clue: The Mosque is situated in the northern area of the city.

    I will post the exact location by midnight. :)
