Mehtar Mahal - Bijapur India

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.

Though modestly sized, Mehtar Mahal dated to 1620 is one of the most elegant structures in the fort; the entry gate in particular has been built in Indo-Saracenic style. The façade has three arches, which depict exquisite “cornice supported on carved corbels”. A gateway leads to the Mehtar mosque, which is a three-storey building. It has two slender minarets that are covered with delicately carved birds and rows of swans.
