Situated on the spot where Sheikh Salim Chisti lived, the sacred complex is situated at the highest point of the ridge. Jami Masjid or the main congregational mosque of the town is the most important building here and houses two monumental gateways known as Buland Darwaja commemorating Akbar's victory over Deccan and Badshahi Darwaja, the reserved entrance for the emperor to the mosque. It also houses a big and beautiful courtyard with the splendid architectural masterpiece known as the Tomb of Salim Chishti, which is one of the most sought-after buildings in Fatehpur Sikri.
This complex also houses Jamat Khana, originally used as the assembly
hall for religious practices by the disciples of Sheikh Salim and later
converted to their graveyard, Yaran Chabutra housing the graves of some
other disciples of Chisti, Zanana Rauza or the tomb of the women of
Sheikh Salim's family, an ablution tank where the devotees could perform
ablutions before entering the tomb, a Jhalra or step well and a Birka or
cistern, the sources of water-supply to the mosque and Langar Khana,
where the food was distributed to the poor.
