Jama Masjid - Review
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, Delhi Reviews
What can one say about the iconic Jama Masjid? Such a beautiful piece of architecture that will leave you awestruck by its magnificence. From the steps to the raised platform, you can feel history come alive. I have been here many times and every time I visit it, I fall in love with it again and again. One should definitely visit it to see what I am talking about.
Beautiful Mosque We were told this is the biggest mosque in India and it is certainly an amazing building. The architecture is beautiful and it's a lovely place to visit. With it being a place of worship there is a dress code to visit and ladies do have to wear kind of long gowns over their clothes (these are provided). I would like to visit again when there is a religious service on, apparently the place can hold 25,000 worshippers - I imagine that is a spectacular sight. And the best thing about this is its nearby food its amazing.
We are a mixed group of Indian and English foreigners. For our visit to this masjid the 'staff' at the main entrance were not helpful at all. First, they insist shoes are removed and try to get you to pay at the shoe rack. Note: you can enter and carry shoes but the rules change at prayer time. They insist you cover up but do not tell you in a polite way. The cover ups they give you are unsuitable for the hot weather. Some western folk were allowed slippers. The ground is unbearably hot even through socks. And finally, they insist on a 300 rupees fee for any form of camera....it is a fee to allow you to 'carry' a camera device even if you don't use it. This means you pay to carry in your mobile phone!! It does allow you to take a photo "inside" where "inside" is just a prayer room. Half our group entered and took photos showing a beautiful building complex. I am sorry to say that this was the least welcoming place of worship that I have visited in Delhi.
Very very beautiful! BEWARE if you are a foreigner they will try to charge you 300 per person! The correct price is 300 for a camera. So if you don’t want to take pics it’s free. Or if you’re in a group of 10 just take one Camera and instead of paying 3000 pay 300.
One of the biggest holy place for Muslim. This place is really awesome. The place beside it is full busy crowded but when you come into it we will get a peace of mind. Best place to visit in Delhi. Don't ever miss it if you are interested in heavy old construction.
