Lat Ki MasjidBuilt by Feroz Shah Tughluq, the mosque, known as Lat-ki-Masjid is a unique example of Tughluq architecture. The mosque is a combination of buildings, L-shaped ablution tank and a 'Lat' (pillar). The mosque is built partly of red and buff sandstone and partly of rubble masonry having thick plaster. Stone pillars showing floral and geometrical designs, extricated from destroyed Hindu temples, support the main arched openings.

The main prayer-hall has nine bays consisting of arches supported on pillars. It has a carved 'qibla' and a pulpit on the wall in the west. Within the courtyard in the northeast, there is a 'Lat' (pillar) after which the mosque is named. The 'Lat', made of sandstone, is a part of an Asokan pillar. A few letters in Mauryan Brahmi are visible at the top, while in the lower portion some names have been scratched at a later date.
