The Masjid’s first floor roof is flat, without any parapet and has 10 big & 9 small domes arranged as shown in my post titled Jami Masjid. Big domes are 7 meter in diameter, the second floor roof has the biggest dome (main dome of the prayer hall as seen from inside, shown in previous post) and 8 small domes.

All big domes have the Kalash (Hindu's pious Water Pot) carved out of stone crowning them, some being in broken condition.

This might, once again, be indicative of the confluence of Islamic architecture and Hindu craftsmanship in this landscape.
