Many compartments in the prayer hall have low domes atop and are different from those which crown the mihrab's niches. The domes have latticed windows made in the typical architectural style of Gujarat. The columns are built in two rows , each with 26 columns forming a passage that separates the wall in the front from the first row. Yet another feature is there are eight rows formed by six pillars in each row. Closer to front part, these produce 14 chambers, each topped by a dome. However, arcaded entrances to the aisle of the mosque have a flat roof. The jambs here rise to a height of about 40 feet with sharp finials at top.
