Jama Masjid


At Jama Masjid, (New Delhi, India). “In October of 1650, Emperor Shah Jahan laid the foundations stone of what he wanted to be ‘the finest mosque in the world’, the Jama Masjid. Constructed under the supervision of the Persian architect Fazil-Mir-Saman, it was a masterly composition in symmetry and simplicity. An impressive number of cartographers, calligraphers, architects and workers (it is believed over 3,000 workers toiled for six years) collaborated to create the splendid mosque” FROM THE BOOK Delhi by Heart BY Raza Rumi
