Ahmed Khan's Mosque and Tomb

This cubical tomb with dome appears in the typical Islamic style (Deccani) architecture. Just north of it is a rectangular pavilion with an array of circular decorated pillars supporting the flat roof.

If you already have seen a bit of Hampi’s religious architecture so far, this could be easily mistaken for a Hindu or Jain religious structure.

The prayer niche of a mosque and the inscriptions at the site along with other evidences made the researchers conclude that this was a mosque indeed. A little north of the mosque you can spot a rectangular well.

Both theses structures are located a bit off from the main road and tucked into the banana plantations. Though nearby and visible from the main road there are no definite paths leading to these structures. These are some of the quick off beaten trail explorations you can make on the way from Kamalapura to Vittala Temple.

Cover it as part of the Route 4 shown in the Hampi itinerary map. After about 1½ km from Kamalapura to Vittala Temple you'll leave the main road and take a left deviation. Just under another 1½km on your left appears Ahmed Khan's Mosque and the nearby tomb. Before that you would have a crossed a few ruined temples, most of them on your left.

Leave your bicycle/moped at the main roadside and make your way through the plantation ridges.
