Alamgir Mosque alias Beni Madhav Ka Darera, built by Mughal Emperor Aurangazeb
is at a picturesque location overlooking Panchganga Ghat. The mosque was
built at a spot where stood a magnificent Vishnu temple erected by the
Maratha chieftain Beni Madhav Rao Scindia in the 17th century. During
the Mughal invasion, the temple was destroyed and the mosque was constructed.
This imposing Hindu and Persian architectural structure, designed with
carved pillars, turrets and marvelous domes, showcase the rich artworks
of ancient India.
