How to get to tikamgarh madhya pradesh india


The driveway to You is done by the Delhi Darwaza. This is the best preserved gate of the city wall in the north of the city. From here you can quickly reach the center of the village and the first attraction in the center of You. First we visited the mosque Jami Masjidwho have here the houses of You towers. It is said to be the most beautiful and largest Afghan-style mosque in all of India. Not to be confused with the mosque of the same name in the center of Delhi or Bophal.

Here you pay the foreigner entrance fee of 100 rupees for the first time at a ticket booth at the entrance and you can visit two sights: the Jami Masjid and the tomb of the Hoshang Shah, about which I made a separate page to accommodate the many pictures.

The Friday Mosque is a magnificent and impressive building with a spacious inner courtyard lined with a gallery of columns, the west side of which borders on an open prayer room supported by numerous columns. It's wonderfully cool here and you can take great photos of the rows of columns. The large courtyard of the mosque is enclosed on all sides by huge colonnades, the arches, columns and pointed arches of which, as well as the rows of domes on top, are arranged in perfect alternation.

Allegedly everything here was built along the lines of the great mosque in Damascus. But that cannot be true, because it was built in the 4th century as a basilica-style church with a 140-meter-long prayer hall and in the 8th century as a mosque with added minarets. Nevertheless, the huge proportions and the strict simplicity of the construction are still very impressive today. Striking and different from most of the other mosques we visited is the square domed building in front of the main entrance, there are also no minarets.

On the right-hand side, a narrow corridor leads out into the garden, from here you can reach the neighboring courtyard in which the tomb of the is located Hoshang Shah is located.

Ashrafi Mahal

Directly opposite the main entrance of the mosque is the Coin Palace, the Ashrafi Mahal. It can be reached through a turnstile without further admission control and it is the least impressive of the three archaeological centers.

The original Koran school was in one axis with the mosque and is later in the ruler's tomb Dargah Sharif Shaikh Abdullha Shattari been transformed. Not much has survived, there are still a few pillars and stone tablets decorated with Quranic verses lying around everywhere. The rest is more of a ruin and you have to take off your shoes at the grave around the corner and you are not allowed to take photos, which is what the local guard pays attention to. There isn't much to see there either. There is a nice big tree next to the outer walls and from up here you have a good view of the neighboring Hindu temple and the entrance of the opposite one Jamid Masjid Mosque.
