Built by Ahmed Shah in 1423, the Jama Masjid is the principal place of prayers for Muslims, ranked as one of India’s most beautiful mosques, enhanced by an enormous, peaceful courtyard. The mosque displays Indo-Islamic architectural fusion notably in the lotus-like carving of some domes. The prayer hall’s 260 columns support 15 principal domes at different elevations. The mosque lies south of the processional axis that runs from the Maidan-i Shah with three arches called Teen Darwaza in the old city. Ahmed Shah, his son, and his grandson have mausoleums west of the mosque. A short walk away lies Rani no Hajiro, the tombstones of queens and wives of the dynasty.
