The Great Mosque of Ankarabad, also called the Masjid Altughalaq Zilah (meaning Mosque of the Tughalaq District) is a mosque in the Old City of Ankarabad. It was originally called the Caliph Muhammad Asfah Shah Mosque when constructed under the Kashiludun Caliphate but the name was dropped after the affiliation of the mosques went from Ayyad Islam to Ahfariq Islam during the Blue Flag Revolution.
