...you can drop by. They are almost similar in design. Delhi's Jama is much bigger and better preserved.
Anyway, it is close to Agra fort. Take a rikshaw and you'll pass a bustling market where you'll see unbelievable things from people selling everything, over the street hairdressers to street dentists.
In the middle of that chaos you'll climb few steps and reach the Jama courtyard. The inside man will guide you through the mosque, similar in design, but much poorer than Delhi's.
At the end he will, of course, ask for the tip and for mosque donation.
Allow 30 minutes.

Nice architecture of mughal days. Offerings and prayers are still a practise till date. Common People are allowed except for fridays.

Near to Taj.

The site is impressive, thus we did not like the fact that we had to cover ourselves with dirty cloth they gave us to cover our shorts and shirts (for the girls). They even tried to charge us for that cloth.
If you go to get to go to Fatehpur Sikri, you wil be wise to skip this site.

If you think you are visiting the mosques you are acostumed too, just Forget it. This is a very ancient mosque, very well conserved, built with stones (bricks) without using iron structures. It has no praying room inside, everything is outsider between the beautiull walls and domes. All red and yellow. Beautiful marble. The square is large and the columns worthy seeing. To take pictures and vídeo you have to pay. Needless to say you have to take off your shoes. Taking the hotel room slippers is a good idea!

I'm glad I visited this place. It's authentic and I liked that there were a lot of Indians (tourists?) instead of the international masses. It somehow reminded me of a mosk I once visited in Cairo.
