This landmark of Fatehpur Sikri is the prime attraction of this historical city since ages. One of the first and foremost constructions of the complex by Mughal emperor Akbar, it dates back to the 16th century and still proudly places itself in one of the finest Mosques of India.
Built in the traditional Indian style, the Iwans around the central courtyard and the discernible Chhatri (meaning Umbrella) shelters the main building. The three Mihrabs in each of the seven bays and the large Mihrab covered by the dome are adorned in white marble and the geometric patterns offer the architectural variance in construction.
