Fatehpuri Masjid is a 17th-century mosque located at the western end of Delhi's oldest street, Chandni Chowk. It is opposite the red fort at the opposite end of Chandni Chowk. Fatehpuri Masjid was built in 1650 by Fatehpuri Begum, one of the wives of Emperor Shah Jahan who was from Fatehpur Sikri, and the mosque in the Taj Mahal is also named after him. The British had auctioned off the mosque after the 1857 war from Rai Lala Chunnamal (whose descendants still live in Chunnamal haveli in Chandni Chowk), which preserved the mosque. Later, in 1877, it was acquired by the government in exchange for four villages and was returned to the Muslims in Delhi's Durbar when the British allowed the Muslims to return to Old Delhi. Khari Baoli, which is now Asia's largest spice market, developed gradually after the construction of the mosque. The Muslim festivals Id-ul-Fitr and Id-ul-Zuha are held with great enthusiasm in the mosque. Mufti Mukarram Ahmad is the main mufti and imam of the mosque and has been there for almost 42 years, and before him, his father Maulana Mufti Mohammad Ahmad (died 21 October 1971/1391) was imam and mufti of the mosque. The mosque is built of red sandstone and has a ribbed dome with mahapadma and kalash on top. Flanked by minarets, it has a traditional design with the prayer room with openings of seven arches. The mosque has one- and two-storey apartments on the sides.
デリーのレッドフォート近くにありますきれいなモスクです。レッドフォート辺りはかなりの人込みですので、ちょっと、見つけづらいかもしれませんが、時間があれば探して見てください。リアルな地元のモスクの風景が見られます。 more »This is a pretty mosque near the Red Fort in Delhi. The Red Fort area is quite a crowd, so it may be a little hard to find, but if you have time, look for it. You can see a real local mosque scene.
An ocean of calm in this noisy and boisterous neighbourhood. It’s a medieval building and entry is free though one needs to take off ones as is the case with most religious buildings in India.
Old mosque in the heart of chandni chowk. Best for its vintage Islamic architecture
