If you are visiting Agra don't forget to visit Jama Mazid. Must visit for religious and history lovers. Sharp stone work. Go to tower to see the beauty from height. Avoid summer season. Try to learn from book or take help online before visiting to put life in visit.
The masjid itself is a very beautiful place, but there are many people annoy you into buying postcards and handicrafts. Don't believe any so called "government-hired" student helper or officials, they will show you around but eventually bring you to their "family-owned" stores.

A beautiful mosque. I would definitely recommend visiting this place. Truly stunning architecture.
Nice place but its full of scams and guides. Be aware when you go to visit. Masjid is beautiful and carved with beautiful design on roof and walls..
Beautiful place but sad to see the poor condition of paintings, it's badly in need of preservation work.
