About Jama Masjid In Old Delhi

One of the major tourist attractions, Jama Masjid is the largest and well-known mosque in India. Located across the road that runs from the Red Fort to the extreme of Chandni Chowk, Jama Masjid is a grand yet chaotic thoroughfare of unusually glamorous Old Delhi. Jama Masjid, built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan when Delhi was known as Shahjahanabad, remains the hot spot for foreign and national tourists. The mosque is redolent on the grand Mughal architecture that reminds you of the glorious Indian history. Some elements are borrowed from Islamic, Indian and Persian architectural styles to strike a perfect balance of all three styles. The distinctive features of the Jama Masjid that include tall minaret towers and protruding domes can be easily distinguished from far away. Jama Masjid's history throws light on the reason why Shah Jahan wanted to place the pulpit higher than his residence and throne. The original name of Jama Masjid was “Masjid-e-Jahanuma” whose meaning adheres to “a mosque that commands a view of the world”. 

Take a walk through the old yet vivid lanes of Chandni Chowk that are always dotted with traders who have lived here through generations. You can easily spot old Havelis and traditional-style homes that have stayed the same over the years.

Jama Masjid is also known as the Masjid e Jahan Numa. It is one of the most visited places in Delhi. This large mosque has been the center of attraction for many people. It was built during the years 1650 and 1656. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan was the brain behind this marvelous mausoleum. The cost of construction of this amazing marvel was approximately INR 1 million. Apart from being a marvelous architecture, Jama Masjid is also a place of worship for millions. The mosque can accommodate a total of 25,000 people at the same time. If you are on your way to the capital city, then don’t forget to visit this serene Mughal marvel.

    • Trip to Himachal

      On arrival of first day, No early checkin at hotel and upto 9am we are waiting for check in at another hotel. All hotel are outside the market, nearly 3 to 5 km. Cab is old but driver (Mr. Sanjay) is so good and timely remind us all the program. Rohtang pass is best place in Himachal which is not placed in our trip. We arrange ownself and pay extra buck to driver for this place and dear reader if u have planned for Rohtang pass, leave the hotel 6 to 7 am.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Hiii myself Eshak. I booked a trip with North India tours and Travel to shimla and manali from delhi through TT. So about this trip i would like to share with other travellers and agents abouts some good and bad experience about this trip. Here are some points below: 1. Firstly the Hotels they provided us were very beautiful also the service of the hotel Royal Regency in shimla is awesome, the staff there is alwz at ur help but the hotel in manali i.e. Hotel Himalayan Heights is is also good but there service is hopeless. Please never choose that hotel. The only good thing bout the hotel is that it is beautiful and nothin els. The provide avg quality brkfst n dinner. You wont get the basic needed things u would expect from a hotel from them 2. Thou the hotels are good but both the hotels are far from the main centre so if u enter the hotel early you have nothing to do other thn watchin tv....or whatevr u do in idle time 3. The itinerary is a baseless thing. It wont be the same as shown in the itinerary. I made a mistake i dint checked the itinerary while on the trip and the driver also dint told me much about the places included in the itinerary. When i got back home i checked it again i saw in it many places which i dint visited during the trip...like, zoo, jaku temple etc etc. 4. I had an issue with the payment but TT agent solved it thou late and after my repeated asking fr a couple f time. 5. The agent Neha from North India Tour and Travel is good and polite.

    • Trip to Rajasthan

      We had trouble in the bus provided, we had asked for a 22seater vehicle, but we got a 30 seater bus. The driver was not comfortable with the routes, he kept repeating that the bus will not go in the roads recommend ed by Google. We lost almost 5-6 hrs roaming in the cities. The travel agent sitting in Delhi does not know that the hotels he has booked has narrow roads, he should have recommended smaller cabs. Rani ki Vav is a awesome structure, I would recommend this place highly
