In this mosque construction project, one main gate Sahan (the prayer hall) is made. In this sahan corridors are partitioned by pillars in three rows. There is one pillar in each corridor. In the wall of Qibla eight Mehrab are there and for muezzin teaching Namaz Qibla’s minbar is also there. All pillars of this mosque are influenced by Parvarti Paramar style. Its tracery is special.  Probably these pillars are obtained from some Paramar temples. Four doors are shown in the main segment of mosque. Domb prior primitive is made, on which renovation is done.

On this door there is a door stream, main – quad is constructed. At main door stream Paramar period stream is being placed.
