Jama Masjid, New Delhi
Jama Masjid also known as 'Masjid-i-Jahanuma' or ‘Mosque commanding view of the world’ was the principal mosque of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who also built the Taj Mahal.

Historians tell us that 5,000 artisans built the Jama Masjid in 1656 using red sandstone and white marble. On the east side, the mosque faces Lal Quila or Red Fort. It has three gateways, four towers and two minarets.

This final architectural piece of the Shah Jahan is the largest mosque in India.

Jama Masjid stands on the hill of Bho Jhala of the old Mughal capital city of Shahjahanabad.

Consisting of cusped arches, 260 pillars and 15 marble domes, the main prayer hall can accommodate 25,000 devotees for Namaaz (prayer).
