Shah Jahan's Mosque, made out of white marble, is located in the inner courtyard of the Dargah Sharif. The structure of the mosque has a 30.5 meters long court with a low arcade and also has delicate carvings with trellis work on the sanctum. The mosque is built in the typical Mughal style of architecture and features 11 arches.

The 41 m high mosque is exquisitely built and is topped by a beautiful marble dome. People believe that the marble used for building the dome of this mosque was extracted from the same mines from which marbles for the Taj Mahal were extracted. The mosque which is green and white coloured was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan.
