JAHANPANAH

IN THE HEART of fahanpanah, Muhammad bin Tughluq’s capital, stands Beguinpuri Mosque, also built by Khan-ifahan funan Shah. (Ask specifically for the old mosque, as a new one is located nearby.) The mosque is remarkable for its 44 domes which surmount the cloisters surrounding the central courtyard. It is said that in times of need, this mosque also functioned as a treasury, a granary and a general meeting place. To the north is the palace of Bijay Mandal, from where, according to the 14th-century Arab traveller IHn Batuta, Muhammad bin Tughluq reviewed his troops. The upper platform offers a grand view of Delhi, extending from the Qutb Minar to  and beyond.
