The main eastern gate leads to an ancient tank, which was built in eighteenth century. It is situated in the midst of gardens, now furnished with masonry steps and embankments and contains about ten feet of stagnant water, filled with gold and silver fish. The upper story is upheld by five rows of wooden pillars, each of the rows contains a receptacle for sacred books. In accordance with a scheme framed by the high court in 1897, the affairs of the Masjid and its allied properties are governed by eleven elected members of the Kokni community.
