HAve visited Jama Masjid many times since early 90's and every time I go there it is surely an experience that allows me to experience the era in which this magnificent mosque was built.

Too many thieves praying on tourists with no supervision and the cops looking the other way taking a piece of the action. A sad situation for a beautiful mosque with a rich history,

I've never been to a mask and was excited when i was going to visit jama masjid. there's no entry fee. but to carry a camera inside the mosque, you've to pay 300 INR even if you're indian, which i feel is atrocious. since i was curious, i paid for the camera anyway! i went inside only to be disappointed. the structure was pretty small, a waste of 300 bucks. it might have been interesting if i could have climbed up the tower, but, unfortunately, one, it was ticketed, 30 per person, two, a guy (brother, dad, whoever) has to be accompanying you. i wasn't very pleased neither with this, not with the bright hot sun. the place was dirty and they didn't have a proper arrangement to avoid your feet getting burnt in the hot sun. also, another important thing, women have to go fully covered - no capris or sleeveless clothes. you've to remove your footwear outside so wear an old pair of shoes/ sandals to avoid having your footwear stolen and when you enter inside, you'll see people holding their footwear in their hand - weird! i was very disappointed.

The ructure is beautiful...In heart of Old delhi, the entire pla gives a feeling of going backto archaic delhi when Mughals reigned....it has a very different feel to it...but the enermous vendors selling cheap stugff in the galis leading to the masjid, sem to create nuisance and all the rikshaws though give ua good feel but creattraffic jams..

First visit we arrived at prayer time which was around 5pm we were told to wait outside for about 20 minutes than to stand off to the side in the sun then after waiting 40 minutes we were told it would be a lot longer and that we should go. Throughout this process you were left feeling that we shouldn't have been there at all. On visiting the second time the mosque was lovely structurally but I didn't experience the peace or surreal feeling that you would normally embrace. You are charged for cameras, women for having to wear one of their wraps - even if dressed appriopriately and shoes being minded.
