It is said that Shah Jahan himself stayed in the last days (in the period of 1658-66) of his life in Mina Masjid as his son Aurangzeb imprisoned him. It is an unadorned and simple building enclosed by high walls but a highly visited place for the tourist of Agra. Only ornamental elements needs to build the mosque were marble tiles. Four exquisitely carved and shaped white marble brackets supporting its chajja. A small window of the chamber overlooks the near by Machhchi Bhawan.
