Jama Masjid reflects the world

By Catherine Torbey:

The Jama Masjid, the “World-Reflecting Mosque”, was constructed in Delhi between 1644 and 1656 by over 5000 workers.

The magnificent archways and beautiful red sandstone walls can accommodate more than 25,000 worshippers at a time, and have survived explosions, gun attacks and revolts.

It is not only the architecture that is spellbinding, but the vibrant colours and personalities of the Indian people within it.
