The design of the mosque can be best described as a fusion of Arab, Mughal and Moorish architecture. The dome layout and floorplan of the mosque was inspired by the Badshahi Mosque and the architecture was inspired by both Mughal and Moorish design. Its archways are quintessentially Moorish and its minarets classically Arab.
