About Jama Masjid

Jama Masjid is the biggest and most revered mosque in Delhi. It is a reminder of Shah Jahan's last architectural extravagance. The building rises above the splendor of the Red Fort towering over the old Delhi area. Set on an elevated mound that can be reached by an ascent of some 35 steps, it is the finest example of a three-domed Mughal mosque. The massive courtyard of this attraction can hold up to 25,000 worshippers. It exudes serenity and is always bustling with a flight of pigeons. A few relics of Prophet Muhammad, including a hair from his beard, his sandals, and his footprint in marble, are said to be preserved in a pavilion along with two copies of Quran on deerskin. Flanked by minarets on all four sides, the entrance of the mosque is adorned with high rising arches which cover the mihrab. Pool in the center of this sacred place is used by some faithful devotees for ablutions before prayer.

Pro Tip: Tourists are not allowed to enter during prayer hours. Dress modestly while visiting Jama Masjid. Avoid sleeveless. Shorts and skirts.
