“Worth a look if you plan to visit the Purana Qila area of the city”

Khairul Manzil Masjid
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We happened upon this historical mosque while walking around the Purana Qila area on Mathura Road. This mosque was built in 1561 by Emperor Akbar's wet nurse and remains a working place of worship to this day.

We enjoyed seeing the ruins on the outside, providing context to the age of this structure. The inside area of Khair-ul-Manazil was ok to visit, there is a nice large dome, making this a decent added attraction if you plan to visit the more ancient (old fort) area of the city, known as Purana Qila. There is also a decent area just beyond the walls of the mosque known as Sher Shah Gate that is worth a stop as well.

Overall, not an individual priority visit while in Delhi but worth a quick look of you plan to be in this area to visit the Purana Qila area.
