While i was in agra fort, i decided to come to this mosque to have a prayer. When i first looked at the mosque it was just so beautiful. The atmosphere felt different to other mosques i have visit.

Close to the Red Fort and Chandni Chowk, the mosque is located amongst the Jama (cotton) market. Spend 30 minutes walking through the market, then enter the mosque (sans shoes). The main courtyard can accommodate up to 25,000 worshippers. Plan your visit around prayer times when it closes to non worshippers.

it was not too busy the day we went, and it was quite spectacular. Also gives good photo opportunities across Delhi to the Red Fort. And some excellent market shopping opposite gate 1, which is convenient for Karims restaurant!

This is a large mosque and very beautiful. Charge of 300rps to take in your camera. Avoid Friday as this is the 'sabbath' so most of the time the mosque is closed for prayers. Area outside is a little daunting as it is a very busy bizarre, most people arrive by car or rickshaw but we actually walked from the... More

Although it may not be as nice-looking as Delhi's Jama Masjid, you can feel here the tranquility of a worship place much better than in Delhi and it is a great place for resting a bit after a (very exciting but exhausting) walk in the surrounding small old streets .

I didn't enter the mosque as it is still a place of active worship, and therefore deserving of respect. Also to allow worshippers to pray in peace, without tourists tramping around them. the exterior is an amazing piece of architecture.
