Archeologists have discovered a historical mosque in the federal capital dating back 500 years. The mosque was discovered by the CDA’s Environment Wing during restoration work on the lotus lake. There is also an equally old banyan tree in the courtyard of the mosque. According to the relevant authorities, the site has been declared an archaeological site.
The historical mosque was initially estimated to be 100 years old, but further analysis by experts suggests it is much older. The CDA is now arranging for a comprehensive survey of the mosque to determine the true status of the site. The CDA has undertaken similar projects in recent years.
