I liked place. Area is very narrow. They charge to much money as fees. Nothing special to see. I did not see gentleness.

A nice old Mughal style mosque, well preserved. One must remove their shoes at the entrance. and beware the ground could get hot! A nice quiet place to spend some time and take few photos in between the hustle and bustle of the city.

One of the most beautiful monuments. Even with the crowded streets, it is serene. Have seen few mosques but this is the best of all.

Like my review of Dakshineswar Kali Temple in Kolkata be aware that its shoes off here and the ground is very, very hot. Cameras are only allowed with a fee paid and its closed on a friday. Beautiful architecture though.

This place is also known as the 'World-reflecting Mosque', it is the largest mosque in India and well worth the visit - I believe it's often called "Jama" which means Friday. The mosque was built by Shah Jahan (who also built the Taj Mahal, at Agra and the Red Fort in New Delhi)! More than 5000 worked on the mosque... More

Must see while in Agra! Go with a tour guide or read about the history of this mosque prior, it will be more worth your visit. You have to pay to take your camera in. Go early or late when the sun isn't beating down on you. Recommended.

Difficult to visit, but interesting once arrived. Near Agra Fort, I recommend arriving later in the day after it starts to cool, but before they close.
