Jama Masjid

After our hair-raising ride through the alleys of the Chandni Chowk bazaar, it was lovely to have the expanse of the beautiful red sandstone and white marble Jama Masjid, which means 'the Friday mosque,' the largest in India, to wander through.

Built by order of Shah Jahan, who also commissioned the Taj Mahal, it was finished in 1656 A.D. and can hold up to 25,000 worshipers
