From “Royal Mosque, a testimony to 700 years of history,” in Newindpress, with thanks to Kskat:
RAJAHMUNDRY: The simple and unostentatious exterior of the Royal Mosque of Rajahmundry belies its uniqueness and historicity. It stands as a testimony to history spanning seven centuries.
The Royal Mosque or Shahi Jamia Masjid is among the oldest mosques constructed in Andhra Pradesh and dates back to the Tughluq era.
It was constructed by Suleiman Humayun Ulugh Khan, son of Ghiasuddin Abdul Mujaffar Tugluq – the Sultan of Delhi – on August 20, 1305. According to historians, the Tugluqs converted Venugopala temple into this mosque.
More important, however, is the uninterrupted history of Namaaz (prayers) for the past 700 years.
Really? More important to whom? Why?
