One of the largest mosques in the world, Jama Masjid is a spectacular piece of structural design fashioned by the creative genius of Shah Jahan. A calm respite from the mayhem of the modern city, the mosque has three gateways, four towers and two minarets designed in Islamic style of architecture. Climbing 121 steps up the southern minaret is no mean feat but the end result is breathtaking. Behold the panoramic view of the city and a unique feature in Edwin Lutyens design – Jama Masjid, CP and Sansad Bhawan are in a direct line.
What To Look Out For: Red Fort located opposite to the mosque is another Mughal gem
