JUMA MASJID

JUMA MASJID

The Juma Masjid is an important monument for Palanpur's Muslim population, as the Friday namaaz has been held here since 1882.



This mosque was built by Diwan Mujahid Khan II in 1649, but began to be used for mass namaaz only after 1847, during the rule of Diwan Fateh Khan. The holy structure was skilfully restored by Diwan Sher Mohammed Khan.
