A beautiful pocket of calm at the heart of Old Delhi's mayhem is Shah Jahan’s last architectural extravagance, the Jama Masjid. It is India’s largest mosque and a must visit tourist attraction in Delhi. The massive courtyard can hold up to twenty-five thousand worshippers and houses an ancient copy of the Quran inscribed on deer skin. The Jama Masjid is flanked by slim red and white minarets on all four sides which reach high into the sky. From the top of the minaret, you can marvel at the architecture of Edwin Lutyens who incorporated the mosque into his design of New Delhi – the Jama Masjid, Connaught Place and Sansad Bhavan (Parliament House) are in a direct line.
