The Taj Mahal, Agra: 256 reviews and 621 photos

On the western side of the Taj Mahal is this mosque which is built out of red sandstone. The mosque's basic design is similar to others built by Shah Jahan, particularly to his Masjid-i-Jahan Numa, or Jama Masjid of Delhi ? a long hall surmounted by three domes. It was completed in 1643.
