The third largest mosque inside the Walled City of Delhi is a lesser known mosque made by Shah Jahan in the memory of his lesser known wife Fatehpuri Begum.
This is a red sandstone structure without any tall minarets or huge domes. Even though the central dome of this mosque looks like of marble, which is actually of lime mortar.
Fatehpuri Masjid history is filled with pathos. After the 1857 revolt at Delhi by British Indian Army, this mosque was first damaged by the Britishers and than sold to a Hindu merchant and was returned to the faithfuls.
