This mosque is situated near Purana Qila just across the Mathura Road. Nearest metro station is Pragati Maidan. Not so well maintained, neither are many tourists there.

This mosque is right opposite purana qila. People usually miss this place but its worth a visit. Local people and travellers offer prayers at various times and therefore usual cleanliness is maintained. However, ASI is not paying due attention to maintain the structure.
