The Original Babri Masjid, Panipat (1529 CE) - POTW #127

Located in Panipat this mosque, also known as Kabuli Bagh Masjid, was built by Babur (the first mosque to be built by him in India), the founder of Mughal Dynasty, as a token of thanksgiving to God post his victory over the armies of Ibrahim Lodi in the First Battle of Panipat (1526 CE). So, by that virtue it becomes the original Babri Masjid. Click here to find out more..

Architecture-wise a two aisle mosque, a part of it has collapse due to aging and lack of maintenance.
