Last year, during my visit to Delhi, I went to Jama Masjid, which is one of the largest mosques in India. It was the first mosque, I visited and was amazed by its grandeur and simplicity. It was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1644 and 1656, the architecture is spell bounding and it looks like a palace. It is visited by a huge number of people every day. Unlike Hindu temples, there are no restrictions while taking pictures. You can also go to the top of the minaret and get a bird’s eye of the surrounding areas. There are no entry fees required to visit this monument. One can enter with his shoes, but cannot put it in the ground, hence I saw people roaming the masjid complex carrying shoes in their hand as unattended shoes tend to get stolen in India. If are visiting Delhi and have not been to this place, you should certainly visit it. It is located in Chandni Chowk and can be easily reached by bus or metro. Some of the pictures that I have taken are given below –
