For over a century, Saifee Masjid has stood as a symbol of devotion and architectural splendor within the Dawoodi Bohra community in Mumbai. The recent reconstruction of this magnificent mosque has not only preserved its historical significance but has also infused modern elements to ensure it remains a beacon of faith for generations to come.
Saifee Masjid looks amazing from the outside. It combines Mughal and Moorish styles in its design. The arches, pretty screens, and tall towers with detailed designs make you feel like you’re in the past. They used white marble for the outside, making the mosque feel calm and pure.
The Saifee Masjid has a modern HVAC system on its rooftop. This system helps keep the mosque cool in hot weather. It was built carefully to fit the mosque’s design and provide comfort to the people who come to pray. The HVAC system shows how the mosque combines tradition with modern technology for a better worship experience
The existing Saifee masjid was documented to understand the whole building, interior carvings in detail so that it could be reconstructed in the same manner. To attain a Net zero carbon footprint; wood and metal obtained during demolition are being reused in the construction of the building thus achieving Zero Material Wastage.
Before the restoration of Saifee Masjid, wooden columns provided support for the entire structure. However, during the restoration process, the interior support was replaced with a concrete structure (RCC), while the exterior retained its original wooden carvings.
