The Masjid-i Jahān-Numā the 'World-reflecting Mosque', commonly known as the Jama Masjid of Delhi, is the principal mosque of Old Delhi in India.

 

Commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, it is the largest and best-known mosque in India. Construction began in 1650 and was completed in 1656. It lies at the beginning of the Chawri Bazar Road, a very busy central street of Old Delhi. The later name, Jama Masjid, refers to the weekly Friday noon congregation prayers of Muslims, Jummah, which are usually done in a mosque, the "congregational mosque" or "jāma masjid". The courtyard of the mosque can hold up to twenty-five thousand worshippers. The mosque also houses several relics in a closet in the north gate, including an antique copy of the Qur'an written on deer skin.

A Mosque is a place to be totally engrossed in one's thoughts,in one's own world...who knows what is he thinking or what is he pondering upon...is it about his everyday life or about future or past ...who knows?

At Jama Masjid Sarkhej Roza, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. At the time when Ahmedabad city was built, which was during the reign of Ahmed Shah (1410-1443 A.D.), Sarkhej was a village with a population consisting of weavers and indigo-dyers who were predominantly Hindu. It became associated with the name of Shaikh Ahmed Khattu Ganj Baksh, a Sufi saint and a friend/advisor to Sultan Ahmed Shah, who in his later years retired to the quiet environment of Sarkhej, away from the city. The saint lived till he was 111 years of age and was greatly venerated during his lifetime. Myths about his miraculous powers are prevalent even today. Life and teachings of Shaikh Ganj Baksh Khattu Upon his death in 1445, the reigning monarch, Mohammed Shah ordered a mausoleum built in his honour, along with a mosque.

I arrived in Delhi to get the train bound for Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, to attend the huge Hindu Kumbh Mela festival that was held at the time. Old Delhi, around the Jama Masjid area, is a fun, fascinating place and is fast becoming an old friend each time I get there for another India adventure - 07/02/2013
