  • Located at one side of the Dargah complex, the Akbari Masjid is a unique spot indeed. One has to climb up a few steep steps to reach a citadel upon which this mosque was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Akbar. Most people coming to the Dargah don't know about its existence and as a result it's almost always empty, I had a grand time exploring such a beautiful structure on my own and then sitting down in one corner and imagining how Akbar himself and later perhaps his sons and grandsons used to come and pray here too. Like all mosques, one has to dress modestly and wear a covering on the head for both men and women.
  • Akbari Masjid is a mosque located inside the dargah area in the name of the great Mughal ruler Akbar. Once you are inside the dargah you will visit this place and can have namaz here. It's told that the large utensils for making food for the common people located on either side of the dargah are made by him. Altogether it's a must-visit place for travellers.
