About Jama Masjid
A Mughal-style mosque with 40m high minarets. Also known as Masjid-I-Jahan-Numa which translates to ‘the mosque with a commanding view of the world’, was built by nearly 5000 workers under the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan. The word ‘Jama’ roughly translates to Friday and hence it is also called as the Friday Mosque.

A 16th-century monument, it can accommodate up to 25,000 worshippers at a time. Jama Masjid is considered as the largest mosque in India with an area of about 408 square km.
