Damadi Masjid
Damadi Masjid

In a marked contrast to the unadorned style of Nizam Shah buildings,standing amidst now-neglected surroundings close to the Ahmednagar Cantonment, is the Damdi Masjid. Built in 1568, in the exemplary Deccan style with intricate stone carvings, this single storied structure has an impressive fade of three arches supported on carved piers. The odd sounding name comes from damdis, the then currency of the smallest denomination that was contributed by people building this mosque.
