Jaipur: Controversy seems to be brewing over Adhai Din Ka Jhopra (a mosque structure ) located in the Ajmer district of Rajasthan. Jaipur MP Ramcharan Bohra had claimed that it was originally a temple and a center of Sanskrit education, which was demolished on the instructions of Mohammad Gauri.

Bohra first claimed this on the occasion of the foundation day of Rajasthan University on Tuesday and said that very soon Sanskrit mantras will once again be heard in the Adhai Din Ka Jhopra of Ajmer.

Ajmer building was historically a Hindu temple

Now he has written a letter to Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy and said that this monument was a temple and Sanskrit education centre by Maharaj Vigraha Raj. 'this was an important centre for the propagation of Puranas and Sanskrit education. These symbols of the terror of Mughals are like stain on Indian society. I am sending this letter to bring it in its original form,' said Bohra in his letter.

Ajmer building is one of the oldest mosques in India

This historical building built in Ajmer is a mosque. It is one of the oldest mosques in India, and the oldest surviving monument in Ajmer.

Commissioned by Qutb-ud-Din-Aibak in 1192 CE and designed by Abu Bakr of Herat, the mosque is an example of early Indo-Islamic architecture.

The structure was used as a mosque up to 1947. After the independence, the structure was handed over to the Jaipur Circle of ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) and is today visited by people of all religions, as a fine example of a mix of Indian, Hindu, Muslim and Jain search architecture.
