Murtaza, When you say this Masjid was built by the same Mughal Emperor who built the Taj Mahal, do you know if the same builder was involved in the design and construction? and when was this masjid built?

of course the builder was some one else, i just trying to mention the time period under which it was built out. but for us this not lesser than TAJ MEHAL, because of its uniqueness designs, pettrens & much more... and it is only peace of MUGHAL ART & ARCHITECTURE.

I m IN SEARCH THAT ANY FEATURE OF IT WHICH IS STILL UNDEFINED.... OR REQUIRED TO WORK OUT ON IT?

Murtaza, as you say, each design in architecture is unique, but there will always be certain common features and elements within any one era. So the comparison of architectural designs within an era / time period allows pieces of the jigsaw to be either found or deduced. :)

Murtaza, original documentation would be the ideal, but where documentation is not available then the comparison of parallel situations allows you to make calculated assumptions.
