The focus of prayer is not the self... ,It is the momentary disregard of our personal concerns....

To the west of the Taj is the Mosque,made up of Red sand stone.

It faces the direction of the holy city of Mecca


Adorned with pietra dura on the outside, the mosque

boasts of 4 octagonal towers and 3 elegant domes.

The sparkling floor is made up of a material that appears to be velvet

red in shade and is

laid out with the outlines of 569 prayer rugs in black marbles.


The interiors of the mosque are inscribed with delicate calligraphy

citing the name Allah and quotations from scriptures.


The mosque has a basic tripartite design:a long hall surmounted by three domes.

The mosque has one of the finest architectecture in terms of design,detailing,symmetry and beauty that i have seen.........
