This makes it a very important place for Indian Muslims as well as Muslims from other countries. Jama Masjid is also home to several lyrics from the Mughal period and hence an interesting place to visit but what most people are mesmerized by is the grandiose construction.
The architecture is simply exquisite with beautiful marble minarets and brown arches adorning it. The strong iron door at the entrance is an impressive structure.

Visit 1 month ago The mosque is located in old Delhi and is very peaceful and beautiful place. Better to go by metro as it is the most crowded place. The local market was colorful and dazzling. Architecture was stunning. Nearby restaurants have tasty mughlai food. Before going inside you have to wrap yourself if you are wearing short dresses and have to remove your footwear as well because this is a holy place. Best part is the amazing view of Delhi from the top of minaret.Must visit this beautiful visit place with family or friends...
It is one of the good places to visit, walk and chill. Very good environment and very nice feelings around it. Many choices are available for selection. Our time were well spent and I have a great time with my accompany and my whole group. Thank you very much and appreciate for the time. Have a great day and night today and tomorrow.
Iconic Mosque. Rich history. Has a paid shoe stand outside though shoes can be carried inside (in hands). Entry is free but there is a ₹50 fee to climb the minaret which offers a panoramic view of old Delhi.
Built by Shah Jahan, the Jama Masjid is one of the largest Mosques in Delhi and certainly the most iconic. The architecture and decor are amazing and you can spend a couple hours looking and admiring. The mosque sits across the road of the red fort and nestled amongst the markets of the old city. There are plenty of nice restaurants alongside that you should definitely visit whilst here.
