Jama Masjid

The largest mosque and one of the most beautiful examples of Islamic architecture present in India, the Jama Masjid is located just opposite the Red Fort in Delhi. The mosque which means “commanding view of the world” was built during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan between 1644 and 1658. It has a very spacious compound that can accommodate thousands of devotees at once. The main architectural attractions are the minarets and towers. The main tower has a 5- storey structure with projecting balconies on each level. The work of calligraphy is worth mentioning too. The main materials used were sandstone and marble.

The Masjid-i Jahān-Numā (the 'World-reflecting Mosque'), commonly known as the Jama Masjid of Delhi, is one of the largest mosques in India.It was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1644 and 1656 at a cost of 1 million rupees, and was inaugurated by an Imam from Bukhara, present-day Uzbekistan.The mosque was completed in 1656 AD with three great gates, four towers and two 40 metres high minarets constructed with strips of red sandstone and white marble. The courtyard can accommodate more than 25,000 people . There are three domes on the terrace which are surrounded by the two minarets. On the floor, a total of 899 black borders are marked for worshippers. The architectural plan of Badshahi Masjid, built by Shah Jahan's son Aurangzeb at Lahore, Pakistan, is similar to the Jama Masjid.

Red Fort to Jama Masjid is a 20 minute walk. WE got to Jama Masjid, rested under the dome for a while. It is a very peaceful place and again quite rich in architecture. By this time it is approaching evening and we were exhausted with lugging the backpack around and roaming in Delhi's heat.
