Zinat-ul Masjid
Located on Khairati Ghat, Ansari Road along the walls of Shahjahanabad in Daryaganj, opposite Shakti Sthal and south of Red Fort, Zinat-ul Masjid is also known as 'Ghata Masjid'. Built in 1707 AD by Zinat-ul-Nissa Begum, the daughter of Emperor Aurangzeb, the mosque is said to be a replica of the magnificent Jama Masjid on a smaller scale. The main features of this beautiful mosque are its sky touching minarets, Kangura battlements and its alternative strips of white and black marble on the domes. The mosque is a protected monument as it is of considerable architectural merit.


Zinat-ul Masjid


The mosque has a large courtyard, which is built on a raised platform. Beneath the courtyard there are over 12 basement chambers, which were used for various purposes. It also has a tank in the center, which is no longer in use. The main entrance of the courtyard is from southern side while the northern side entrance remains closed. The walls of the mosque are built of random rubble and dressed stone while the floor is constructed with red sandstone. The two towering minarets are made mainly of red sandstone. Surmounted by three bulbous domes, the prayer chamber of the mosque consists of seven arches. There was also a tomb in the courtyard where Zinat-ul-Begum was buried in 1711 AD. The British removed the tomb after the 1857 war when they used the mosque for military purposes.
