  • It is a very vast area and a holy place, so should visit this with great respect and love. Take a look at the walls and the work on them. 
  • We went here without intention of wanting or needing a guide as we like to wonder at our own pace. Yet someone approached us and said he wouldn't charge and didn't let us have time to say no. At the e...  more »
  • A nice mosque which all can enter regardless of religion except during prayer times. It's part of the fatehpur complex. This is where Akbar used to pray.

  • 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.
