A Muslim man prays in the courtyard of Fatehpur Sikri's Main Mosque, or Jama Masjid (ARCHIVED PHOTO on the weekends - originally photographed 2009/11/18).

The bright orange color of the man's beard is the result of a dye made of henna, a coloring agent extracted from a henna plant. For people who are familiar with Indian weddings, you'll know that henna is also used to temporarily tattoo the hands of the bride and often other members of the wedding party.
