This is the mazjid for muslim society.To worship ALLAH.Many of the muslim society people visit here on the day of friday for namaz. And this mazjid is of very ancient times.And has a very huge construction
Jama Masjid in Burhanpur is one of the major mosques its a historical monument worth visiting. The masjid was built by one of the mugals by getting a specific stone from another state which gives it its jet black colour. The pillars are aligned with such precision that they are absolutely straight. It was built without the high-tech tools of the modern era. The acoustics of the masjid is such that a person reciting the azaan (prayer call) will be heard all throughout the masjid and the surrounding areas. This was really important when loud speakers were yet to be invented! The pillars are in such position that a person standing on the mimbar (pedestal) can be visible to more than 80% of the people in the crowd.
Simply Beautiful.... Must Visit ... Near Gandhi Chowk , Burhanpur.... Construed in Black stone by Adil Shah Farouqi 2....
Great Historical Monumental Structure With Eminent Architecture. It Is Made Of Just One Black Stone. Must Visit Place
Awsm place to visit.. 500-600 yr old historical building. The mosque without roof.... Means the pillars is so formed that they meet at the top n forms the roof of the mosque.. Its is popular for the stone with is equally costly to gold at that time
