Travel Guide to Delhi - Madhi MasjidAmong several other mosques in the neighbourhood, a mosque popularly known as Madhi-Masjid and situated about 500m south of the Jamali-Kamali Masjid is somewhat unusual. Its prayer-hall combines the features of an open wall-mosque and a covered mosque. On either side of its three central bays on the wall-mosque are flat-roofed chambers with arched openings. It is profusely ornamented with coloured tiles.

Its domed square gateway on the east is built with grey stone, with projecting windows of red stone. With its comparatively massive proportions, recalling the gateway of the Bara-Gumbad mosque of the Lodi period, it is very impressive from the roadside. It is likely to have been built in the Lodi or early Mughal times.
