Built through 1644-1656 and by the great Shah Jahan, the Jama Masjid is one of the largest mosques in India and is visited by thousands every day. It is recognised for its architecture, designed by one of the greatest architects of the time, Ustad Khalil. People from across the globe visit the mosque to study the characteristics of Islamic architecture, which is evident in other monuments like the Taj Mahal and Qutub Minar.
With Bakrid just a few days away, this venue should be on your ‘must visit’ list if you’re visiting Delhi around this time. With the mosque’s capacity to hold over 85,000 people, several gather here to offer their prayers. There are also several food stalls around the mosque that cook up some succulent non-veg dishes. These are prepared specially during the time of Bakrid, so don’t miss out on it. With people, food and the elegant Jama Masjid you’re sure to get some amazing photographs. Also don’t miss the sunset here, it’s said to be a view better witnessed than explained.
