Maryam-uz-Zamani Mosque

Among the most courtly Mughal monuments is a mosque built by Jahangir's mother—the daughter of the famous Raja of Amber Bihari Mal and sister of Raja Bhagwant Das, later a grandee at Akbar's court—who carried the title of Maryamuzzamani or Mary of the Age.
The mosque stands out for its unique fresco decoration, with which the whole interior surface of the prayer chamber is replete. The paintings are unrivalled for their delicacy, liveliness, perfection of technique, and variety of subject. The endless variety of geometric, floral, and inscriptional designs spread over the interior surface in a subtle colour scheme is not seen elsewhere. The surface has been divided into various panels of different shapes and dimensions according to the space available, and all the soffits, niches, squinches, arches, dome interiors, and apex are covered with these paintings.
It was due to the mosque's utilization as a gunpowder factory by Ranjit Singh, that the mosque became known as Barudkhana Wali Masjid. It was not until 1850 that the mosque was restored to the Muslims of Lahore who were able to rehabilitate it with their contributions.

Maryam Zamani Mosque (built 1614)

The Maryam Zamani Mosque is named after Queen Maryam Zamani, the wife of Emperor Akbar. It is the earliest surviving Mughal mosque in Lahore and is the first to exhibit the five-bay facade that would become typical of nearly all future mosques built by the Mughals. It is a comparatively small structure, measuring just 50 meters east-west and 50 meters north-south. Often called Begum Shahi Masjid, the mosque stands just opposite the Masjidi Gate of the Lahore fort.

Dai Anga Mosque (built 1635)

Dai Anga served as Shah Jahan's wet nurse and remained an influential force in the dynasty until her death in 1672. She is responsible for several monuments in Lahore that still survive, including her tomb near the Gulabi Bagh garden gate. Her mosque, seen here, was constructed in 1635. Although a relatively small structure, it is notable for its refined use of decoration and its stately three-bay facade. It remains in an excellent state of preservation since Dai Anga took care to donate a substantial waqf (endowment) to ensure its maintenance after her death. However, in spite of this, it was briefly converted into the residence of Henry Cope, a newspaper editor, during the rule of the British. It was restored to its original function in 1903 and has served as an active mosque ever since.

Ferhat Pasha Mosque in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, built by the Ottomans in 1579. Following the destruction during the armed conflict in 1993, it was completely rebuilt in line with the original design and open recently to the Muslim congregation and the general public.

Sultan Murad mosque in Skopje, Macedonia, built in 1436 in the early Constantinople style of Ottoman architecture. It was damaged in the earthquakes of 1555 and 1963 and the fires of 1537 and 1689, but was renovated in 1539, 1711, 1912 and 1979.
Some historians claim it was built on the foundations of a medieval monastery.

Eh, why not? Crossposted from the Urban Revitalization thread.

Jamaat Khana Mosque, Nizamuddin Basti (Mosque) (built: 1315-1325)

Nearly 700 years old and predating the Mughals by over 200 years, the Jammat Khana Mosque is the oldest islamic religious building in Delhi that is still in use. Everyday, thousands of worshippers congregate the compound, not least because the shrine of the revered Sufi saint Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya lies just outside the front door. Besides him, the tombs of the Sufi mystic Amir Khusrow, Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah Rangila, and Mughal princess Jahanara Begum also lie in the mosque's courtyard.

However, centuries of footfall, weathering, and lead paint has eroded the structure, and efforts are still ongoing to restore the mosque to its former glory.

Mustafa Pasha Mosque is an Ottoman-era mosque located in the old town in Skopje, Macedonia. The structure stands on a plateau above the old bazaar, built in 1492 by Mustafa Pasha, vizier on the court of Sultan Selim I.

The mosque is largely intact from its original state, and no additions have been made through the years. The body of the daughter of Mustafa Pasha is buried in the thomb next to the mosque. The mosque has a rose garden.
