Emperor Shah Jahan built The Jama Masjid (Place of Prayer) in the Old Delhi. It was the most important mosque of Old Delhi in 1656 and it remains the most cherished and revered one even today. 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. There are intricate carvings in many places in the interior of the Masjid. The main yard is so huge it can hold up to 25000 people at the same time making it a very powerful place of worship. There are a lot of beautifully constructed steps in many places that make the Masjid distinctive in appearance. Jama Masjid is inextricably linked with the history and culture of Delhi and hence a very significant place of visit for any Delhi tourist.

Jama Masjid Reviews & Ratings
No words can explain the peace that you achieve by visiting such places. If you are in Delhi you must visit Jama Masjid. Peaceful place with a beautiful monument. Do not forget to notice the beauty of the monument carved so well. Beauty:5/5 Peace:5/5
If u love street food and are a meat lover then this is the place to visit after 9pm in Delhi. The food here is out of the world. Cheap and tasty. Do not use the rickshaws here. Just walk and take it the smells and sights of this beautiful and crazy place.
This is one of the good places to visit though getting here is quite an adventure given the roads and the hungry eaters flocking to Kareem's.. Best time to visit is early morning. Other than escaping the crowds, this monument looks really beautiful at morning.
It is a mosque. Near by all different types of variety available here.. Food zone shopping zone... At night full different varieties you can see like food, clothes, shoes and many more... Tasty food available.. There is a lot traffic but in few minutes you can reach wherever you want to go..I like this place.
Good place for cheap price shopping But my experience says that if want to buy anything from there that's worth, because they selling not good quality stuff. Lots off man think that u can buy anything things on cheap price from there but that's not true they are selling fake stuff and people are thinking they selling on cheap price . That's my opinion if want to buy from there then go there may be u bought good stuff. They always told very high rate u can bargain. If want u want to buy anything from there before buy u make sure about then u buy anything
