The Jama Masjid is an assembling mosque for vast groups of followers, which was built by Sheikh Salim Chisti, and was among the architects which were the first creations of Fatehpur Sikri. It has the traditional design of a mosque, having the main nave with a central dome and large courtyard halls on each of the sides. There are two chamber halls square in shape which are adorned on the top with domes. The design of the place certainly makes it a sight to be beheld.
Engravings of quibla decorate the central court hall along with other chambers. The facade and the porch are supported by pillars built of sandstone, and the entrance consists of three arched gateways with panelled frames and topped by five structures named chhatris. The central courtyard exhibits the usage of glazed tiles along with intrinsic works on mosaics of coloured stones. There are traditional golden engravings and scriptures upon a royal blue backdrop. The interior of the walls are adorned with designed flowers in watercolour. The Jama Masjid is a serene place of worship incomparable to another in India making it a must visit for the culture-seeker.
