Famous Mosques in the Indian Capital City
Jama Masjid is India’s largest mosque. Praying here during Ramadan with thousands of people is an experience in itself.
The Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin is a sacred place for both Muslims and Hindus alike as it houses the tombs of the renowned poet and musician Amir Khusrau and his Sufi master Nizamuddin Aulia. The mystical Quwwali is performed here after the evening prayers.
It is one of the best architectural specimens of Shah Jahan’s era built by Fatehpuri Begum in 1650.
Covering an area of almost 87 sq meters, Khirki mosque has 4 vast courtyards providing abundant sunlight and ventilation to the prayer halls inside.
Moth ki Masjid
