This is the first Muslim mosque built in India, and the Imam was proud to state he constructed it out of materials from "27 destroyed Hindu temples". You can see evidence of pre-existing Hindi temple, on the pillars with defaced Hindu gods and goddesses. It is rumored that if you encircle the random black metal pole in the middle of the courtyard with your back to it, your wish will come true. The Imam feared misfortune if he touched this sacred Hindu relic, so it stayed, rust-free for centuries!
