Paper Abstract

In the Contemporary context, globalization, urbanization, and technological advancements have redefined the architectural landscape of mosques. Modern designs showcase innovative approaches to incorporating "Shan" space, catering to evolving societal needs while preserving the spiritual essence and symbolic significance inherent in traditional mosque architecture. This study delves into the intricate spatial concept of "Shan" within mosque architecture, examining its evolution across three distinct epochs: Mughal, Colonial, and Contemporary. "Shan" encapsulates the essence of grandeur, sanctity, and spiritual elevation within the architectural framework of mosques. By employing a comparative analytical approach, this research investigates how the perception and utilization of "Shan" space have transformed over time, influenced by cultural, socio-political, and technological shifts. The Mughal period serves as the foundational epoch, characterized by majestic structures where "Shan" space was intricately woven into the architectural fabric, symbolizing the divine authority and imperial glory of the Mughal rulers. The Colonial era introduces a paradigm shift, marked by the imposition of Western architectural ideologies and colonial power dynamics. Through an interdisciplinary lens encompassing architectural history, cultural studies, and religious anthropology, this study illuminates the nuanced evolution of "Shan" space within mosque architecture, shedding light on its enduring relevance and adaptability amidst changing socio-cultural landscapes. By understanding the dynamic interplay between tradition and modernity, this research offers insights into the preservation and innovation of architectural heritage in contemporary mosque design.
