The Lal Masjid (Hindi: लाल मस्जिद, Urdu: لال مسجد‎, literally: Red Mosque) of Delhi, also known as the Fakrul Masjid, is a mosque located in Bara Bazaar, Kashmiri Gate. It was built in 1728-29 by Kaniz-i-Fatima (entitled Fakr-i-Jahan), in memory of her husband Shujaat Khan, a noble in Aurangzeb's court. The mosque was included in Colonel James Skinner's estate, and is sometimes wrongly attributed to him.
