    Moti Masjid

    Moti Masjid

    From the corner of this court steps (Maktab khaa) lead Moti Masjid, the quiet and secluded Pearl Mosque built by Shah Jahan in 1644. Shah Jahan later built a similar mosque in the Agra Red Fort in 1654; Aurangzeb

    built the most exquisite pearl mosque of all in 1662 in the Delhi Red Fort. During the rule of Shah Jahan the Mughal emperor, numerous architectural wonders were built. Most famous of them being the Taj Mahal. Moti Masjid earned the epithet Pearl Mosque for it shined like a pearl. It stands on ground that slopes from east to west to the north of Diwan-i-Aam complex in Agra Fort. The courtyard of the Moti Masjid has side arcades and arched recessions and the main sanctuary facade beyond. All three are faced in white marble, charmingly intimate, and noteworthy for their delicate proportions and purity of line. In Sikh times the mosque was used as a treasury, but in 19204 British Givernor-General Lord Curzon ordered its restoration.
