Stop by Jama Masjid and admire one of the largest mosques in India. The mosque, also referred to as the “Friday mosque,” is an extremely popular pilgrimage site for devotees. Emperor Shah Jahan built the mosque in 1648, in honor of his daughter Jahanara Begum. Admire the intricate Iranian architecture of the mosque, which took six years and over 5,000 workers to complete. Visitors must dress appropriately; knees should be covered and shoes removed upon arrival. Plan to see Jama Masjid and other attractions that appeal to you using our Agra family vacation planner.

  • Pleasant Environment Nice place..but in summer its tough to be here.....one more thing...The Best moment is August to February.
  • Beautiful Mosque Situated in Old Agra Near Agra Fort Railway Station. Must Visit if you Love Street Photography.
  • The Mosque was built by Mughal emperor, Shahjahan in 1648 and dedicated to his favourite daughter, Jahanara Begum. There was a spacious, octagonal Tripolia Chowk which existed between the Jama Masjid and the Delhi gate of the Agra Fort. This Tropolia was destroyed in order to create the Agra Fort Railway Station. The cloisters have engrailed arches supported on pillars. The main entrance is through the eastern side. The prayer chamber has a façade with a broad arched iwan in its centre and is adorned with slender turrets alternated with kiosks. Its dome is the largest and highest of the three domes crowning the sanctuary.

Where to stay in Agra

Agra offers a broad selection of budget and mid-range hotels, many within easy striking distance of the Taj Mahal, the main reason to visit the city. The area just south of Taj offers arguably the least expensive accommodations, while the streets splitting off from Fatehabad Road boast a high concentration of mid-range hotels. Keep in mind that free Wi-Fi remains unavailable even in most of Agra's nicest hotels--expect additional (and possibly steep) fees for limited Internet access.
