Sukun milta h jama masjid me. Best architecture.
One of the best architecture marvel from faruqi dynasty, this entire structure is having no separate roof but a intersection of archs, a must visit site for every tourist.
Great place for Namaz. It is Farooqui construction, built by Aadil Shah Farooqui. It is the most popular Landmark situated in Central city.
Jama Masjid –About the Jama Masjid Burhanpur : JAMA MASJID is one of the famous buildings constructed during Farooqi rule in India. In early days when the population of Burhanpur was very less and mostly in Northern Burhanpur, a Jama Masjid was constructed in ward Itwara by Begum Ruquiya wife of King Azam Humayun in 1529. This was the first Jama Masjid in Burhanpur and is known as Bibi Ki Masjid As the population increased and spreaded all throughout the city, it was then King Adil Shah Farooqi who decided to build a bigger mosque in the center of the city. The foundation of the present Jama Masjid was laid in 1590. After a hard work round the clock for five years this Masjid was completed in 1595. This Masjid is similar to the Jama Masjid in Delhi. History of Jama Masjid : There is a history behind the Jama Masjid built in Burhanpur, Madhya Pradesh. During 1421, when most of the population of Burhanpur lived to the north, Azam Humayum built the Jama Masjid in Etwara called the Bibi Ki masjid. But soon with the growth of the city, ruler Adil Shah built the present Jama Masjid in the centre of the town, easily accessible to all the people living in Burhanpur. The construction of the Jama Masjid was started in 1590 and completed 5 years later. The Jama Masjid is a historic monument as well as a place of worship. It is centrally located in Gandhi Chowk. The construction of Jama Masjid started in Farooqi rule. The construction of the monument took very long and continued even after Farooqi leader Adil Shah's demise. Then Emperor Akbar supervised and completed the work of the Masjid. There are two large minarets, three round cupolas and extensive artwork on its symmetric pillars which are well conserved One of the masjid which is made totally in black stone, which is still in use, A unique thing about this masjid is there is Arabic as well as Sanskrit Calligraphy work done on stone in one part of the masjid I visited the Mosque early in the morning to my surprise an employee of the Mosque came up by himself and guided me He showed each and every thing in the mosque & spoke about its history Worth a visit here 😍
