The Mahabat Maqbara In Junagadh Is A Gorgeous Blend Of Different Architectural Styles

Published on 17 June, 2016 at 9:11 pm By

Located in a bustling area in Junagadh, Mahabat Maqbara has a way disarming people who aren’t ready for the view. The maqbara is built in Islamic, Indian and European styles, which end up giving it an almost otherworldly charm.

Construction of the building began in 1878, and it was completed by 1892. There are various influences in the architecture; there are Islamic minarets, French-style windows, Colonial spiral staircases, Indian style carvings, arches and shining silver doorways.

The mixture of these styles has managed to give the Mahabat Maqbara a very Gothic look. The complex once housed Nawab Mahabat Khan II of Junagadh and now houses his maqbara as well as that of his wazir, Bahaduddinbhai Hasainbhai.
