Visit one of the largest mosque in india - Jama Masjid
The Jama Masjid is one of the largest mosques in India and also a major Islamic worship place in the capital city of Delhi. In Arabic, Jama Masjid means “Friday mosque", which indicates that it is the place where the Muslims in the city traditionally gather for Friday communal prayer every week. The mosque was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 1650 and completed in 1956 with three big gates and two 40-metre minarets constructed with red sandstone and white marble. The whole place stands more than 30 steps higher than the street and visitors need to wear long before entering inside. The courtyard of Jama Masjid can accommodate more than 25000 people and witnessing loads of worshippers praying here is definitely a remarkable, revering, and sacred religious scene. The Jama Masjid is a great stop in the city tour around Delhi where people can admire the featured highlights of Mughal architecture through attractive and exquisite exterior and interior of the buildings here.
