Kirarh ji Masjid, Misri Shah Mohalla, Nasarpur

Area : 5368 Sq. ft.

Kirarki Mosque is situated on the North Western out skirts of Nasarpur town in Mohallah Misri Shah. It is a living mosque and is looked after the local people. Built with 8’’x8’’;1.5’’ size bricks, it is rectangular in plain and as usual has an open courtyard in front. The actual covered potion of the mosque is 39 feet long and 19 feet wide.
Of the three domes only the octagonal drums are left now which are decorated at places with locally made Kashi tiles. The drums are supported on four corner squinches which are finished with Ghalib Kari work.
The interior of the mosque consist of three large arched panels of mehrab shape, the central one being the largest. The main mehrab has a small opening in the centre. Perhaps there was an inscribed tablet on the central arch as is indicated by the sunken panel over there, which at present is painted dark chocolate.
The courtyard is a bit lower than the prayer chamber. The main entrance of the mosque is towards north and a smaller one toward the south. The entire courtyard as well as prayer chamber is paved with brick tiles which appear to be of later period. The original flooring however, is supposed to be of Kashi tile work as in other mosques at Nasarpur.
Nothing definite could be known about the period of this mosque. According to the local belief however it was constructed during the Kalhora period (17th, 18th century A.D).
