Teele wali Masjid , Lucknow

The Teelewali Masjid, the mosque-on-the-mound, was built by Fidaye Khan Khoka in the reign of Shahjehan. He was the disciple of Shah Pir Mohammed and  built the mosque near the Pir's mausoleum. The area has several madrasas and hostels around of which everything was destroyed in the great war of 1857-8. 
It is built in an exquisite style and its interior is absolutely stunning.
