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.

    Swapnil's 4 days trip to Old Delhi

    Not happy with travel agent. My 2nd and 3rd hotel changed without any information. And most important my travel agent not aware about this. When I called to hotel that time they told me our hotel is under maintenance nd will provide you another hotel. Another issue is travel agent not organised trip well. Lot of point missed to visit. Thumps down

    The hotel in Agra and Ranthambore we're good But the one in Delhi was not good... The travel agent was not readily available..and there was a major goodup with our jungle safari...I thought the safari was booked by agent.. which was not ..and the had no idea safaris have to be booked months prior..so we ended up going to ranthambore and not going on a tiger safari.i think the travel agent should have guided us regarding this. Overall management of the travel agent was not good Tajmahal of course

    Abhijeet's 5 days trip to Old Delhi

    My trip and points were well planned - Thanks to Garimaji. She is always present and available whenever required. Best Things (Unexpected help from Garimaji) My plan got changed in last moment and she arranged a hotel that to in good price range. Good Points: 1) Hotel in Delhi was really awesome 2) Arranged Cabs 3) Sightseeing points - all major and important points we could see in Delhi, Agra, Mathura 4) Food arrangement in Agra Hotel and food 5) Food was amazing in Delhi hotel- although service was slow, it must be due to rush time and all the things were getting prepared when ordered What could have been better: 1) The driver partner 2) Service in Hotel 3) One day instead of Innova we got old and bad conditioned Ertiga, and the driver never ready to show us more than 3 points on that day 4) On next day although promised for Innova at 8.30 - we need to fight for it till 10.15 am 5) The location was good for delhi hotel but the road was too small and ca driver were not ready to come to hotel gate What I didn't like: 1) Cabs keep on changing 2) Few drivers were really pathetic- didn't feel like they were to show us sightseeing 3) Hotel Manager in Delhi 4) Hotel in Agra - location wise good, but condition wise really bad
