Location :Jamali-Kamali Mosque is located at Mehrauli in South Delhi. The construction of this famous mosque started in Babur's time in 1528 and was completed during the reign of Humayun (1535-36). It was constructed for Jamali, the alias of the Sufi saint Shaikh Fazlullah who was also known as Jalal Khan.
A squat masonry dome covers the area behind this arch. This dome mainly resembles the typical Rajput and earlier Sultanate architecture. There are eye-catching verses inscribed on its walls, along with colorfully painted tiles enhancing the beauty of the mosque.
Jamali Kamali masjid and tomb, has recently been renovated by INTACH, an autonomous cultural organization. Jamali was the alias of the Sufi saint Shaikh Fazlullah, who was also known as Jalal Khan. The saint had a prodigious life – he lived right through Sikander Lodi's reign, the famous battle of Panipat in 1526, Babur and died during the lifetime of Humayun. Who Kamali was remains a tantalizing mystery.
