  • The Jama Masjid in Fatehpur Sikri was built by Emperor Akbar under the advice of Sufi Saint Salim Chishti and is a beautiful architechtural monument. Worth a visit. 
  • Another structure built by Akbar showcasing his love for GOD...he built jama masjid where he used to pray everyday! 
  • It was interesting to note that there were practically no foreign visitors while we were there. (Only one other group of Westerners) We had a guy who approached us and wanted to be our guide, so we al...  more »

  • BEST TIME TO VISIT;; One can visit the place on all days of the week, from 7:00 a.m. in the morning to 6:00 p.m. in the evening. There is no entry fee. It takes around two hours to see the complete structure. The best time to visit is from October to March. Winter begins in November and can be pleasant during the day time. Nights are quite chilly. Summer begins from March and can get really hot from the months of April to June.
  • It was a joy visiting this place. The mosque has three gates and is surrounded by four tall towers and two minarets. The architecture of this mosque is incredibly marvelous. The experience was ruined a little bit because of the salesmen. The items they offered were overpriced and varied from person to person. I won't recommend you to buy an item from here. Instead, look out for the local marketplaces.
  • Jama Masjid of Fatehpur Sikriis is the largest mosque in Agra. In this Mosque Mazaar of Sheikh Saleem Chisti is situated. The entrance gate for this mosque is called Buland Darwaaza
  • White maszid looks superb among the red one. Rainy seasion increase the charm.
  • It is a Jama Mosque meaning the congregational mosque and was perhaps one of the first buildings to be constructed in the complex, as its epigraph gives AH 979(A.D. 1571-72) as the date of its completion, with a massive entrance to the courtyard, the Buland-Darwaza added some five years later. It was built in the manner of Indian mosques, with iwans around a central courtyard. A distinguishing feature is the row of chhatri over the sanctuary. There are three mihrabs in each of the seven bays, while the large central mihrab is covered by a dome, it is decorated with white marble inlay, in geometric patterns.
