about adhai din ka jhonpra

Legends have it that this fine example of Indo-Islamic architecture was built in just a span of 2.5 days, a feat in itself. Adhai din ka Jhopda in Ajmer is supposedly, a place of worship for the Hindu and Jain culture before a mosque was built out of the temple ruins. It was built by Muhammad Ghori in the year 1198, who had the walls of the mosque engraved with verses from the Quran. It's believed that the pillars that form the foundation as well are from the remains of temples that once stood on the same site. A perfect merging of many religions is evident at Adhai din ka Jhopda, with the main gate having inscriptions in Sanskrit!
