India’s largest mosque, built to accommodate 25,000 worshippers, Jama Masjid looms over the maze of narrow streets that is old Delhi from its hilltop perch. Built by Shah Jahan (of Delhi’s Red Fort fame) between 1644 and 1658, the mosque is a magnificent structure of layered red sandstone and white marble, and crowned with three huge white marble domes. Entering through the great gates you will leave the bedlam of Delhi behind and find a welcome sense of calm as you stroll across the courtyard and watch people come and go to worship or admire.
