Lodhi-era Mosque of Eminabad

Lodhi-era Mosque of Eminabad, Gujranwala, Pakistan

Along the east side of a small reservoir built in the era of Jahangir stands a modest one-story brick mosque. The Pakistani architect and historian Kamil Khan Mumtaz believes that it was constructed in the Lodhi era (1451-1525), suggesting that it is one of the oldest standing mosques in Pakistan. One unique architectural feature is the use of both squinches and pendentives to bridge the gap between the square prayer chamber and the circular dome.
