  • Jama masjid is one of the largest Mosque of India. This place is worth a visit. Its great monument but not well maintained. 
  • This is a very Grand Historic Mosque. It architectural design is un predictably awesome. The centre of this mosque has a waterpool for wazooh and has a very large courtyard. The decorative items used are delicate. The wall has engraved writings. This mosque is very popular in the world
  • Masha allah. .yahaan aakar bhut sukoon milta hai but dukh is baat ki hai ki kabhi kabhi yahaan behurmati bhi bhut dekhne ko milti hai ...but at last I m so happy to see again jama masjid
  • 5 star rating for the beauty and architecture of the mosque but today its beauty is diminishing because people are not caring about it. Although the government is not taking care of it and not any type of security is placed here. It is my request to recover its beauty again and everyone should take care of it. Please!
  • Jummah Khutba is at 1:00. -- Please write Jummah namaz/khutba time in the reviews of all the masjids you know. This will help muslims to offer namaz on time. Jazakallah.
  • A serene, spiritual, & beautiful experience. You can sit by the water inside, bow to the lord, climb up a minaret and observe the old city, or just stroll around and soak in the lovely & lively atmosphere. To reach here, take an e rickshaw from Chawri Bazaar metro station, or a stroll through the old city if you come via Chandni Chowk metro station.
