Mosque & Mihman Khana


The mosque on the left side from the garden and Mihman Khana on the right side create mirror-like symmetry. Mihman Khana was used as the guest house during the death anniversaries of Mumtaz Mahal by the visitors then as a banquet hall for the entertainments of Indian princes and British ranked-people during the late 18th and the 19th centuries. The pool in front of the mosque functions as the place for ablution before the prayer.

The grounds of both buildings are the same. Only the octagonal mihrab niches in the mosque differentiates with the rectangular niches instead of mihrabs. Three marble domes over platforms cover both buildings. The main entrances are decorated with multi-cusped blind arches.
The ground level of the buildings is accessible for general visitors.
