Located in Jahanpanah, the Khirki Masjd was commissioned by Khan-i Jahan Junan Shah, a high ranking official in the court of Tugluq Sultan Firoz Shah. The mosque has derived its name from the khirkis (windows) which adorn the upper floors.

Spread over an area of 87 square metres, the Khirki Masjid has four large courtyards which provide ample light and ventilation to the inner prayer halls of the mosques. The mosque is built on a raised platform and is square in shape and is divided into quarters. Each quarter has its own courtyard. Passageways ways running from the north to the south of the structure divide the mosque into aisles.
