Popularly Known As : The Mosque of Windows

The Khirki mosque was built by Khan-i-Jahan Junan Shah, who was the Prime Minister of Feroze Shah Tughlaq in 1380. The mosque gets its name from its superb windows or 'khirkees'. Famous for its heavy stone lattice windows, "The Mosque of Windows", lies close to the site of Jahanpanah , Delhi's fourth city, 4-km east of Qutub Minar and 13-km south of Connaught Circus . The arched windows with latticework keep the mosque well ventilated. When the sunlight quietly waterfall through them inside the mosque it creates interesting designs on the floor. Two covered passages go across it and cross each other, bang in the middle, at right angles and divide the courtyard into four squares. The roof is supported by massive monolithic columns, which were typical of that period. Sloping towers flank the gateways and prayer niche. Close to the mosque and worth a visit are the remains of the ruined fourth city of Delhi, Jahanpanah, including the high Bijai Mandal Platform and the Begampur Mosque with its variety of domes The Great Interior Work The inner courtyards, which attracted the attention of Hearn, are indeed very fascinating for an architecture and history student. Two covered passages go across it and intersect each other, bang in the middle, at right angles and so the courtyard is divided into four squares. The roof is supported by massive monolithic columns, which were typical of this period. The gateways and prayer niche are flanked by sloping towers.
