Places to visit

  • Humayunmosque : This mosque, known as Humayun's mosque, was constructed by the Mughal emperor Humayun (1529-1556) on the site of the Lat erected by Delhi Sultan Firoz Shah Tughlaq. The mosque has an oblong open patio. A screen constructed of Lakhauri bricks stands to the west of this mosque. The screen features a mihrab bordered on either side by two arched recesses. Here was discovered an inscription honoring Emperor Humayun. The Lat appears to be a portion of one of Emperor Ashoka's pillars, probably at Agroha or Hansi, standing at a height of over 6 meters. The Ashokan epigraph that was once engraved on the pillar was presumably carefully chiseled away in order to write the Tughlaq inscription, which records Firoz Shah's genealogy in beautiful Tughra-Arabic characters carved in high relief. This lintel (pillar) stands in the middle of what appears to be an anciently walled Idgah.
