  • 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.
