Jama Masjid, New Delhi

3.4
One of the largest mosques in India, Jama Masjid can accommodate up to 25,000 people at any given time. Built in the 17th century by Shah Jahan, the same Mughal emperor responsible for the Taj Mahal, the ornate mosque boasts three majestic gates, four towers, and two 40 m (131.2 ft) red sandstone and white marble minarets. While the entrance into the mosque is free, visitors must pay a camera fee and remove their shoes at the gate. Women are also required to wear a shawl, regardless of the rest of their attire.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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
