London, Robert Bowyer for Thomas Daniell, 1798
£3,000

This Mosque is in a very singular, as well as ancient, style of building. The Minars are united by the lofty pointed arch, over which on the inside there is a terraced platform for the convenience of the crier to walk when engaged in calling the Mussulmen to prayers.
Juanpore is forty-two miles N. W. of Benares. It abounds in examples of the best style of Islamic architecture; has a fort of strong masonry, and a very good bridge over the river Goomty, which unites with the Ganges at Siedabad.
