The place has fine architecture and intricate carvings in urdu. It has great potential as a tourist spot, if it is better maintained and marketed. The ruins of the ancient buildings make it a nice place for photography enthusiasts as well. Did not feel like an eerie or haunted place at all.

While the mosque is well worth visiting, you should only enter through gate 3 from Chandi Chowk. We were taken by rickshaw from the Red Fort to gate 2 and felt very unsafe passing through some areas until we reached the market at the base of the steps. This gate was clearly not for tourists and soured our visit a little. We are seasoned travellers and so are not easily rattled but this was not a pleasant experience.

The mosque itself is quite lovely and the view from the minaret worth the climb.

Unfortunately as our shoes were outside Gate 2, we had to leave by this gate and again felt very uncomfortable. We found a rickshaw driver who was also clearly disturbed to see us on the ‘wrong’ side of the mosque and whisked us back to Connaught Place.

Jamali Kamali tomb and mosque is a beautiful place with well known sufi saint Jamali of Lodhi era. The tomb is true sufi place which displays combination of Hindu and Mughal art. Mosque has carvings of lotus, roof of mosque is so colourful , coloured with vegetable colours. It has not been redone since made still very attractive. Mosque area is also peaceful and beautifully made. The complex also has tomb of Bablan and ruins next to that. Considered as one of the most haunted place in India. A must visit place.

This tomb and mosque was an architectural and historical treat to visit, and having the privilege to view and touch some of the relics in the small anteroom was wonderful. The only issue with the place is all the "helpful" people trying to part you with rupees on every front. Money for the shoe guy, money for female garb, money for the uncalled for guide, money for entrance (while all the guide books say there is none), most annoying.
