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.

I believe that this is the largest mosque in India and it is worth a visit. It was raining for my visit which was disappointing but it made for some interesting photographs. One caution, when it is wet the surfaces underfoot become very slippery and, since you have to leave your shoes off, this is dangerous. I recommend going barefoot... More

This is a waste of time - we went through quite a mission to get there and there's absolutely nothing to see. There isn't great architecture or beauty so only go there if you want to pray at the mosque. If you want to experience some craziness in India then get to Jama Masjid just to experience the crazy market... More

Located not too far from the Agra fort. I found it very atmospheric. It has a nice raised courtyard with views onto the market street below. Clerics in discussion and little kids playing hide and seek within the mosque made for an interesting half hour.

Very interesting to see, particularly worth climbing the minaret for view over the town although it was misty the morning we did it.

Nice old mosque in old Delhi, We took a rickshaw ride to see the Fort, Mosque and felt it was a nice experience. The mosque is beautiful and took some nice pictures here. The road was messy and full of traffic but thats all part of the experience :)

Our tour guide took us there, really enjoyed it - one of the oldest mosque in Agra I believe. The old man in charge of the mosque gave us a tour, interesting building, a bit run down to be honest but great experience.
