The Jama Masjid is the largest mosque in India, if not the world. My family found it unsettling as we were to walk up the steps to the mosque, when prayer time ended, there was a man built like a dog. He had shoes on his feet and on his hands. It is hard to accept sights like that in... More

This is situated opposite the Agra Fort. Tourists visiting Jama Masjid can also see the tomb of the celebrated Sufi Saint Sheikh Salim Chisti within the complex. The mosque is bedecked in inlaid geometric designs, colored tiles and calligraphic inscriptions....nice place to visit

A nice place to look at and walk around, entrance is pricey, not so impressive in my opinion, but worth a look.

This is the largest mosque in India and an impressive site. We enjoy our visits to mosques, and often contrast the similarities and differences between those we have visited. Each visit gives us a better understanding of Islam and Islamic culture. If you enjoy the same, don't miss this one!

This is a must place to spend time and learn its history. There is much to be appreciated in the design and construction. Attire covering the full body must be worn when visiting this mosque.
