Exterior view of Moti Masjid, Pearl Mosque, showing part of the courtyard and three sets of steps leading up to three Persian styled archways. Three domes rise above the three sections of the Mosque. The building is constructed from white marble and built under the authority of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb between 1659-1660. ❧ The mosque is one of several buildings inside the Red Fort, at Delhi. The Fort was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and completed in 1648. ❧ This is one of a series of photographs contained in an album showing popular tourist attractions in India, the album was owned by an unknown Church of Scotland missionary who had probably taken the tour whilst working out in the region. Unfortunately there is very little information with the photographs as to there ownership or subject matter.
