Jama Masjid

Erica Louise
The place where I had Lassi, was just opposite the Shahi Jama Masjid. Shah Jahan constructed this Mosque for his most loved girl. There was a Tripolia that existed between Jama Masjid and the Delhi door of Agra Fort, which was demolished to construct the Agra Fort Railway station. Hence, one of the two pillars at the entrance of the Masjid is destroyed. And, just opposite the Mosque, there is the Agra red fort railway station.
The mosque is one of the largest in the world. The temple, quite like all other Mughal architecture, is built on a raised platform and has a large central dome with surrounding minarets and other smaller domes. The exalted courtyard is used for religious gatherings now, where devout Muslims gather to pray. Jama Masjid in Fatehpur Sikri in Uttar Pradesh is built with a combination of red sandstone and fine, white marble.
