Khirki Masjid – aerial photo

An interesting aerial shot of one of the sites I was talking about before – Khirki Masjid. This is a 14th c. mosque that is unusual because much of it is covered, as opposed to having a large central open courtyard. Instead, this has 4 small courtyards with wide “passages” between them. From the sky the shape is pretty interesting, you can see it as the checkered square in the lower left quarter of the photo.

Satpula (the bridge/sluice gate) I had mentioned earlier is in the lower right quarter of the photo, between the road and water body.
