“A Masterpiece in Red SandStone”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Jama Masjid is constructed just opposite to Agra Fort's Delhi Gate overlooking the Agra Fort Railway Station. Still used by Muslims for offering their prayers. It is really interesting to note that this mosque is continuously operational for more than 350 years. The Area has a feel of this & one can easily notice the charm.

“Historically pleasant”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Jama Masjid, popularly known as Jami Masjid or Friday Mosque, is one of the larger mosques in India. 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. Prayers are presented in the central courtyard of the mosque.

Everytime I visit the Jama Masjid and the Dargah of Salim Cishti I feel a sense of peace and the grace of God and the Saint which is eternal.

“Location!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We nearly did not go to see this mosque because of he location. It's situated in the heart of OLD DEHLI. It's not far from Chandni Chok which is one of the worlds famous wholesale market.
I am so glad we did, it's an amazing place. Once you climb up from the hustle and bustle of the market on your way up there is a serenity and calmness.if you want to avoid crazy crowds go on Sunday when the wholesale market is closed.
Please remember there is no fee to go in and also nobody should stop you if you are modestly dressed.there are lots of people sitting outside to make money so just be careful and say no and just do what you need to. No need for a guide I think.
