  • Jama Masjid is a nice, very large mosque! Its gates are beautifully decorated, and there are nice details to enjoy, both structurally, dekorationsmæssigt and historical. A nicer experience than the Friday Mosque of Delhi!

  • The Jama Masjid of visit is not as large and impressive as that still pays in Delhi. It is located right next to the Royal Palace complex and the admission is free. In the Center is also the tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti.

  • The khanqah of Sheikh Salim existed earlier at this place. Akbar's son Jahangir was born in the village of Sikri in 1569 and that year Akbar constructed a religious compound to commemorate the Sheikh ...  more »

  • My experience was good. Its very quite place. Devotees come here. It has historical importance.
  • Jama masjeed. People charges u unusual for the offerings, they have unlimited stories to convince u for buying & offering the same here.
  • Totally beautiful, but one of the worst travel experiences ever. From the parking lot to the bus, constantly hounded by hawkers and unofficial guides. They do not allow outside guides. Then into an overcrowded bus for the 10 minute ride from parking to gate. Upon arrival, we were still bombarded, both inside and out by these unofficial guides. We could not go more than 5 minutes without being approached, sometimes rather aggressively. We finally cut our visit short when trying to get to the mosque, we were angrily yelled at by a guide because we refused to follow him. We saw no western tourists here, and can understand why. Even our driver said he had to watch what he said there for fear of retribution. While the site is breathtaking, until they clean up their act, it is better skipped.
  • Beautiful architecture, but beware of Hawkers… they might ruin your experience... You will enter this by passing through one of the big Darwaha (gate) called Buland Darwaja. This 17th-century mosque in also in World Heritage Site. After Agra, people come here for this along with Buland Darwaja and Panchmahal. It is situated opposite the Agra Fort right in the middle of Fatehpur Sikri. the architecture of the courtyard and surrounding buildings are very impressive. There were worshippers praying while I was there, which added to the reverent atmosphere. But you will get frustrated by these hawkers. They 'll be after you for everything. Don’t ruin the India Image. You may find a few marble craft sellers sitting nearby the Masjid. They have good products but often quote double the price. Make sure you bargain well in case you want to buy something.
  • I Like so much.... Really so nice and Beautiful.
