List of Hindu Temples Destroyed and Converted to Mosques In Assam By Muslim's

We give below, state-wise and district-wise, the particulars of Muslim monuments which
stand on the sites and/or have been built with the materials of Hindu temples, and which
we wish to recall as witnesses to the role of Islam as a religion and the character of Muslim
rule in medieval India. The list is the result of a preliminary survey. Many more Muslim
monuments await examination. Local traditions which have so far been ignored or
neglected, have to be tapped on a large scale.

We have tried our best to be exact in respect of locations, names and dates of the
monuments mentioned. Even so, some mistakes and confusions may have remained. It is
not unoften that different sources provide different dates and names for the same
monument. Many Muslim saints are known by several names, which creates confusion in
identifying their mazãrs or dargãhs. Some districts have been renamed or newly, created
and a place which was earlier under one district may have been included in another. We
shall be grateful to readers who point out these mistakes so that they can be corrected in
our major study. This is only a brief summary.


It should be kept in mind that the list below doesn’t include all the temples destroyed by
Muslims and which were converted to mosques. The below is the list of mosques and
Darghas where evidence exists of having been made after destroying the temples at
these locations. In many mosques, Muslim rulers were able to eradicate all signs of
temples and hence not given in below list.

Anyone is free to visit the below list of mosques and see the remnants and materials of
Hindu temples used in their construction. Archaeological Survey of India should conduct
an excavation of below mosques to find out more about the ancient temples in these
locations and possible mass graves around the mosque sites.

I. DISTRICT KAMRUP
Hajo
1. Poã Masjid (1657). Temple site.
2. Mazãr of a Muslim saint who styled himself Sultãn Ghiyãsud-Dîn Balban. Temple site.

EVIDENCE IS AVAILABLE THAT IN ASSAM THE ABOVE MENTIONED MOSQUES AND
DARGHAS WERE CONSTRUCTED BY DESTROYING HINDU TEMPLES. BUT IN MANY OTHER CASES MUSLIMS SUCCEEDED IN REMOVING ALL TRACES OF TEMPLES FROM THE MOSQUES. IN SUCH CASES ONLY AN EXCAVATION BY ASI WILL REVEAL THE DESTROYED TEMPLES.

WHILE MUSLIMS ASK FOR REBUILDING THE ILLEGAL MOSQUE IN AYODHYA, WHY SHOULD NOT HINDUS DEMAND THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE DESTROYED TEMPLES IN INDIA?
