Located in Bijapur, Mehtar Mahal is the ornamental gateway leading to a mosque and a garden. Meaning a 'Sweeper's Palace', this gateway has a flat stone roof supported by stone brackets of delicately carved birds and rows of swans. This highly decorative gateway is supposed to have been built by a sweeper to whom Ibrahim Adil Shah gifted a huge sum of money on the advice of a soothsayer, so that he could recover from leprosy.
