about jama masjid

Built by Shah Jahan in 1648 and dedicated to his favourite daughter Jahanara Begum, this is one of the most important mosques in the country. The beautiful complex is visible from the Agra Fort and overlooks the Agra Fort Railway Station. The mosque uses both red sandstone and white marble to create a magnificent evidence of Mughal architecture. The central courtyard has a fountain, with four small minaret-shaped kiosks around its corners. The structure required 5000 workers and took nearly 6 years to complete.

You will find splendid panels of inlaid work here, quite similar to the Taj Mahal, something that offers a sense of unity to all of the city's monuments and structures. Every Friday, a large number of Muslim devotees come here to offer their weekly prayers, bringing alive the otherwise serene and quiet atmosphere of the mosque.
