Amber Jama Masjid
Amber Jama Masjid (main mosque) also known as Akbari masjid is built on a slightly raised platform entered through small gateways on three sides. Its rectangular prayer hall on the west, has a magnificent facade of seven arches, the central one is larger then others flanked by four storeyed minarates on either end. The prayer hall is surmounted by three large domes along with an inverted lotus. The courtyard in front of the prayer hall has an ablution tank while the corners of the compound are decorated by minar type chhatri (kiosk).
An inscription on the left side of the central arch states that this mosque was built by Raja Bharmal on the order of Mugal emperor Akbar in A.H. 977 (A.D. 1569).
