Prayer

Moslem lady in prayer

To thee we pray,

by whatever name we may,

in thee our devotion lay.

–    Mo Irom

 The photo with intricate architechtural designs replete with beautiful stucco inscriptions in Perso-Arabic is that of the Mosque of Nizam Khan Sikander II aka ‘Sikandar Lodi’ located inside the Lodi gardens in New Delhi. The mosque is situated in the Bara Gumbad which also houses a big domed structure and a Mehman Khana (Guest house) that was built in an earlier period before it was taken over by Sikander Lodi who built his mosque besides it.
