6 ~ Wouldn't want to be here with 25000 Jama Masjid : Mosque


View India 18 - 19 on bruceontour's travel map.

After a brief explanation by Gautam, 20 minutes was all that I needed inside the Jama Mosque. This is the largest mosque in India holding 25,000 people in its courtyard.

Here is the link to Tripsavvy:

Jama Masjid is another marvelous treasure of the Old City, and it's one of the largest mosque in India. Its courtyard can hold an incredible 25,000 devotees. The mosque took six years to build, and was completed in 1656. A strenuous climb to the top of its southern tower will reward you with a stunning view (albeit obscured by metal security grills) across the rooftops of Delhi. Be sure to dress appropriately when visiting the mosque or you won't be allowed in. This means covering your head, legs and shoulders. Attire is available there.

A prominent landmark and one of the top tourist attractions in Delhi, Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque) is also the biggest and best-known mosque in India. It will transport you back to the time when Delhi was known as Shahjahanabad, the illustrious capital of the Mughal Empire, from 1638 until its fall in 1857.
