Other Buildings Photo # 6
Currently known as Adhai-din-ka-Zopda (the 2-1/2 day cottage) in Ajmer (alias Ajeya-Meru) this edifice was a magnificent, majestic Hindu temple. Invading Muslims battering it for 2-1/2 days after capture reduced the mansion to desolation--hence the name. Historians, architects and archaeologists blindly ascribing it to Muslim creation lustily describe ancient classic Hindu architectural masterpieces as Islamic.

As stated at the beginning of this presentation, in case you did not read it, the captions above the photos are kept the way they were found in the album, so the style of English and the explanations are kept the same. I (Stephen Knapp) did not write these captions, though many people think I did.
