Fatehpuri Masjid Mosque

Built in 1650, the Fatehpuri Masjid mosque is surrounded by the spice market and the bazaar. Men in turban guard its four entrances but you are welcome to enter. The central court is made of slabs that will burn your feet, so you'll rush to the hallways to find some shade. There, you'll be tempted to look within the rooms that border the walls and you'll surprisingly see people eating, sleeping, doing the laundry or listening to a lecture. The mosque is a world in itself. (click on pictures for high res)
