Jama Masjid is situated in the older part of Delhi, now called Chandni Chowk and surrounded by beautiful Mughal structures.Amidst the rush and chaos of Central Delhi, lies the peace and tranquillity of the largest mosque in the country.

Visited the mosque as part of a guided tour of Delhi. Paid entrance fee, given a robe to wear and removed our shoes and left with the shoe keeper (50 rupee fee). Nice architecture. Enjoyed the visit but not essential to visit if in Delhi.
