Every city in Mogul India has Friday Mosque. This one is a great example. Combine with the Red Fort and Chandni Chowk.

A large red sandstone mosque with impressive architectural features. shoes must be removed and women are given a "modesty" garment to wear. Some good views across to the red Fort and Chandi Chowk.

Entrance is free. Also I did not pay for camera. The shoe-minder expects a donation. We paid him Rs10 per pair. Just tell the so-called guides/care takers that you wish to pray and they should please leave you alone to pray.
