Jama Masjid

One of India's largest mosques, a 17th-century Mughal architecture masterpiece with towering minarets and a vast courtyard.

Tips from the community

Jama Masjid is India’s second largest mosque with a capacity of 25,000 people. This grand open air place of worship, with its two 130-foot tall minarets, is quite a sight to behold. However, you’ll need to have some grit to bypass the many scams at the entrance. Entrance to the mosque is free unless you have a camera, which will cost you 300 rupees to bring in. Slippers are available for purchase, but you can decline them and enter barefoot.
