What is the architectural style?!

Let's talk about the architectural styles of buildings in our country that we don't know much about them, other members can help us!

For example there is a strange historical building in the southwest of Iran that we really don't who built it and for what purpose it was built, the architecture seems to be from the south or southeast Asia, some say it is a Sikh temple and some other ones say it is a Burmese Mosque, so call it "Rangooni Mosque".

The technique resembles the one used in Mysore.

Thanks Marathaman, there is something like a Mihrab inside the building, but from the outside, those things don't look like minaret, there is not any Quranic verse on the walls and I don't know about those things in the lower parts of the columns, Muslims can't pray among them. Anyway I think you are right, the architecture can be really from the Indian subcontinent.
