Nice mosque

Its architectural values are fantastic and eye filling in nature. One should not miss this place. Like all other place shoes are not permitted inside the mosque.

What a Great Mosque

Nowadays it becomes full during special occasions. But many, many years back Mughals vision to build such a big mosque which can accommodate so many people was a master stroke.
