The Masjid-e-ala mosque built during Tipu’s time(1784) was completely painted by the “Baburi” motif which was later whitewashed by the British. It has  with two tall graceful minarets and beautiful carved flowery designs on the roof and pillars. In the centre of the mosque are delicately chiseled bunches of grapes and other creepers. A stony solar clock is in the courtyard.
