Pinpointed adjacent to Varanasi Railway Station, Adhai Kangra Masjid is reputed to be a well-known mosque in the city. The mosque has a history dating back to the late 12th century when the Muslims were in powerfully making efforts to colonize a range of Southeast Asian countries. The mosque boasts arresting appearance and yet the striking main gate seems to be the centre piece. Adhai Kangra Masjid manages to remain in public attention and is undoubtedly well maintained even to this date.

This historical monument located in the 'Shivaite' stronghold, symbolizing the city as the cultural capital of India.
