Opposite the fort and overlooking Agra Fort railway station, the Jami Masjid
or "Friday Mosque" was built by Shah Jahan in 1648 and dedicated to his favourite
daughter, Jahanara Begum. Standing on a high plinth approached by stairs, and
with five arched entrances to the courtyard, the mosque is crowned by three large
sandstone domes distinguished by their zigzag bands of marble.
