Welcome to Jami Masjid

Jami Masjid and Bazaars, Located opposite the fort and facing the railway station of Fort Agra Jami Masjid, or "Friday Mosque", was built by Shah Jahan in 1648 and dedicated to his beloved daughter Jahanara Begum. The mosque stands on a high pedestal, to which stairs rise, five vaulted entrances lead to the courtyard, and three large domes of sandstone crowned with marble bands in the form of zigzags crown it.

The walls of the wings of the main prayer hall are decorated with panels of beautifully inlaid sandstone, similar to those adorned by the main gate of the Taj Mahal, which gives the building a sense of the presence of a woman's hand. The current mosque is one of the main sights of the city and serves as a good guide from where to start exploring the noisy bazaars that stretched from its base. These bazaars are located in small streets that have hardly changed since the Mughals, and it is best to walk on them.

Across the northeast corner of the complex, look for pehta traders - the suppliers of the most famous sweets of Agra, made from candied pumpkins (with the delight of devouring wasps that live on the eaves of the mosques of the mihrab mosque).

 Before Jami Masjid you can walk along the road leading northwest from the fort; avoid the flow of traffic when approaching it through the train station, it is better to cut the way through the main office building on the far platform. In terms of photography, the optimal time for her visit is between 7 and 8 am, when the morning sun emphasizes the warm red tones of the stone finish.
