Jama Masjid, Agra

(3.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Stop by Jama Masjid and admire one of the largest mosques in India. The mosque, also referred to as the “Friday mosque,” is an extremely popular pilgrimage site for devotees. Emperor Shah Jahan built the mosque in 1648, in honor of his daughter Jahanara Begum. Admire the intricate Iranian architecture of the mosque, which took six years and over 5,000 workers to complete. Visitors must dress appropriately; knees should be covered and shoes removed upon arrival. Plan to see Jama Masjid and other attractions that appeal to you using our Agra family vacation planner.

  • The mosque is old and beat up. The surrounding area is very poor and dirty but it gives you the sense of what life is really like for the locals.  more »
  • Interesting but not essential. The "guides" in place do not provide much... There are mosques more attractive in India...
