The Jama Masjid, pearl mosque, built by Aurangzeb for his personal use. The
prayer-hall of the mosque is inlaid with outlines of musallas (small carpets for
prayers) in black marble, and it stands at a higher level than the courtyard. The
hall is surmounted by three bulbous domes, originally copper-plated, which
appear to be too constricted at the neck. The eastern door is provided with
copper-plated leaves. The mosque was also used by the ladies of the seraglio.
