Jama Masjid, Delhi, India

After an amazing ride on a bike-powered taxi through the innards of Old Delhi, Sun Sachs and I had the chance to explore the largest mosque in Asia.


The Jama Masjid of Delhi, is the principal mosque of Old Delhi in India. Commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, builder of the Taj Mahal, and completed in the year 1656 AD, it is at the beginning of a very busy and popular center in Old Delhi called Chandni Chowk.
