Fatehpuri Masjid is located at the western end of Chandni Chowk. The mosque was built by Fatehpuri Begum, one of Shah Jahan's wives, in 1650. The mosque is built in red sandstone. The mosque is the only single-domed congregational mosque in the whole of Delhi. Though the mosque appears to be small from outside, it is a fairly big structure once you enter it. The mosque boasts of traditional design and the prayer hall has seven-arched openings. The central arch is the biggest amongst these seven arches. There are single-storeyed and double-storeyed structures on both sides of the mosque.
