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.

    Apurba's 2 days trip to Old Delhi

    All bookings and details were fine until the vehicle by which we were travelling broke down. And the alternate vehicle which was provided for us did not meet our requirements (no. of people and luggage aspect) and we were asked to "adjust" as it was peak holiday season. Nevertheless, after endle
    ss discussions finally proper vehicle was arranged. But our timelines were spoiled, as a result we couldn't visit all the places that were in our list. More importantly the fun in the trip was spoiled because of such problems and since everything was prepaid we did not have much option.
