This mosque is located in Tijara, which was one of the chief towns of the Khanzadas of Mewat, and for long their capital. The mosque situated to the east of the town is popularly known as Lal Masjid for it has been built of red stone. It is a rectangular structure (34.5 x 12 m) with fluted minars at the four corners and arched doorways. The three arched doorways open into a hall (30 m x 7 m), which was once covered by three domes of which the middle one was taller and larger. The southern dome however, has fallen. The central hemispherical dome has on the crest a foliated pillared cupola. Arabic letters are seen in medallions and in linear rows in the lower part of the central dome. There are faint painted Arabic inscriptions at places on the plastered surface in the northern part of the hall. The mosque is datable to about the seventeenth century A.D.
