The mosque is worth visiting, if not by any means a must-see in my opinion. However, it cost me INR300 for about a ten minute visit, which was insane (it costs INR750 to get into the Taj Mahal). I had to leave my shoes at the gate - fair enough, it's a religious thing - but then when I left I had to tip the guy who'd "looked after them" (INR50; maybe he'd have taken less, I don't know). The guy who was showing me round the mosque suddenly turned on me in a side chamber and proffered a bit of paper showing "donations to the mosque"; I was going to donate 100 anyway, but the paper was covered in donations of 1000-1500 and I felt obliged to make it up to 200 to look a bit less cheap. (Even at the time I knew this was a cheap ploy, but I still fell for it.)The instant I handed that over, he said "and 100 for me?" Fortunately my look of shock caused him to revise that down to "and 50 for me?" which I gave him. So, as I say, it cost me 300 all in, which was insane. I'd only been in India about 5 days and I don't like negotiating and I felt oddly vulnerable being in there on my own, but these little tricks didn't help. Forewarned is forearmed, and if you go in determined not to be guilted into paying too much it's well worth a visit, but don't go out of your way to do so would be my advice.
