Visit Jama Masjid

Agra is one of the oldest living cities of India where the Mughal footprints have left an indelible mark in the minds of millions of travellers. Spotted with white marble and sandstone all over, Agra narrates the stories of thousand years old India, the grandeur and royalty of which is absolutely unique and charming. As Agra served as the capital of Mughal Empire for several years, Islamic architecture is deeply rooted in its historical soil. And one of the finest examples of Islamic architecture is the Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque commissioned by Shah Jahan.

As Agra served as the capital of Mughal Empire for several years, Islamic architecture is deeply rooted in its historical soil. And one of the finest examples of Islamic architecture is the Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque commissioned by Shah Jahan.

The magnificent red sandstone mosque took around 6 years to be completed. It emerged as one of the holiest and loveliest places of worship in India. Its onion- shaped dome and tapering minarets signify typical Mughal style of architecture and its artistic brilliance. The entire Jama Masjid complex exudes peace, harmony and bliss and gives one space to breathe in solace and tranquility. Some specific structural features of Jama Masjid like:

  • pillared corridors,
  • domed pavilions,
  • two-storey gateways and
  • square ablution tank
along with marble footprints of Prophet Mohammed and black-marble inscriptions of Shah Jahan's reign delight enthusiastic travellers who love to go deep and deep into India's bygone ear. Situated at the heart of Agra, Jama Masjid is a well preserved historical landmark that is included in everybody's Agra travel itinerary.
