Recommendation by Lemi

Emperor Shah Jahan’s final gift to Delhi was the Jama Masjid, which took 5,000 workers to build and more than 10 years to construct. It is one of the biggest mosques in India, fitting up to 25,000 people! Shah Jahan’s favorite materials (red sandstone and marble) work perfectly in tandem as the mosque glints like a jewel on the Delhi skyline. Ascend 121 steps to the top of the southern minaret for a panoramic view of Delhi’s streets. A note to visitors: remove your shoes at the top of the stairs. Also, the mosque rules that women must be accompanied in the tower.
