Seems that many people didn't check where they uploaded their photos.
Jama Masjid in Delhi is big and looks great. Jama Masjid in Agra, which is close to the train station looks nothing like it, yet many people have added photos from the Delhi one, and even photos from Fatehpur Sikri which is 25km from Agra. It's a mix bag, better look soemwhere else for true photos.

The architectural brilliance of the Jama Masjid is truly aweinspiring. Its red sandstone & marble structure dominate the skyline of Old Delhi

WHEN I walked into one building at Jama Masjid I felt like I was on the set of some Hollywood blockbuster which had created a strange alien environment.
Carved beams criss-crossed overhead with unusual carved decorations beneath each intersection.
It was not the first surprise that a tour of Fatehpursikri would throw at me.
Jama Masjid is a 16th century mosque, one of the largest in India, and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The courtyard is gigantic, covering more than 230,000 sq ft.
Be warned. You have to take your shoes off to be allowed in, women must wear long gowns and men in shorts will be asked to wear a wrap which can be hired at the entrance.

Beautiful place to visit. Steeped in history. You will take your shoes off to get in. Watch having to give tips as the minimum tends to be 100 rupees or be prepared for them to give it back to you!!!

There are capes you can buy but honestly you don’t need them.

My wife and I visited the Jama Masjid as part of a Golden Triangle tour with the TripaDeal group in February.

It was very interesting, but you must remove your shoes, women have to wear long gowns and men, if wearing shorts, have to wear a "wrap". These are hired at the entrance.

It has very interesting architecture and was very busy, with a few different entrances.

Well worth visiting the largest mosque in India.

This ancient mosque is well worth a visit. Be aware that shoes have to be removed (socks can be worn) and women will have to wear a long gown provided at the entrance.

The mosque has one main undercover area and it contains some lovely architectural features. Nice photo ops. Two tall minarets tower above this section.

The main area, though, is a very large open area with a water area in the middle. When we visited long carpets were being laid out in preparation for a later prayer session.

It wasn't quite what I was expecting of a mosque because of the large open area but well worth a visit.
