"Mina Masjid" The Red Fort Tip by Willettsworld

The Red Fort, Agra: 187 reviews and 453 photos


Shah Jehan built Mina Masjid between 1631-40 near Diwan-i-Khas and this mosque was meant to be used by the emperor and the royal ladies. Thus, it was placed close to the palaces of the imperial women. According to surviving rumors, Shah Jehan used it between 1658-66, during the end of his days when his son Aurangzeb in the Muthamman Burj imprisoned him. Enclosed on all sides by high walls to ensure privacy, it is extremely plain and simple. There are three small arches in its fašade and a small mihrab in the western wall of the prayer chamber.
