As with all Muslim mosques, bring an extra pair of socks as you will need to remove your shoes to enter. Love 16th century construction of Indo-islamic design. Worth a visit

While is shares much commonality with many other of India's Mughal sights, this site stood out with it's distinct eastern/buddhist influence reflected in the pagoda, and a lifesize 'parcheesi' board in the middle of the courtyard. Only complaint were the pushy 'entrepreneurs' upon the entrance and exit to the site.

The tower was a highlight of all of dehli. Serious hassle not being able to bring camera inside, and not being able to go up tower without a male escort.

Yet another beautiful historical mosque. This one is huge. We arrived close to sunset and took some really great pictures. There are legit guides and phonies. Some phonies are nice, some are straight up scams. We declined this guide's offer, but he still followed us. So, we let him follow us, all while giving us site and historical information- what...

Shoes off of course. We left ours outside but noticed many carrying their shoes. Women must wear a covering following an incident by a female tourist in the heat of the summer. Fee for camera (300 rupees) and although only one of us had a camera both of us were asked to pay. 20 rupees for the gentleman watching our... More

Agra is a centre for Islamic architecture at its best. Sure there are similarities, but I think that St. Peter is worth seeing, even if you've seen St Paul's.

Worth the stop to look around and get a few photos. Be sure to "splurge" on the slippers (Rs150/pair), as the ground is cold in the winter and is also covered in pigeon excrement. Save your socks/feet and get the slippers or bring your own! As with many tourist/religious sites in India, dress modestly. They do rent large robes for... More

The rickshaw ride to the masjid itself was very eventful as we had to go through the open market and chandni chowk. I would definitely recommend that everyone visit this place.

Its a place of worship, and people from all religions and walks of life are free to go in. This was my first visit ever into a mosque. I liked the place. Its very serene and peaceful inside the Masjid. Even though its in the most crowded area of old Delhi i.e. the Chandni Chowk area, its very peaceful and... More
