Jama Masjid

Jama Masjid is the Friday mosque in Old Delhi. It consists of a huge plaza on a hill facing a building where the muezzin call the faithful to prayer. The plaza faces toward Mecca, which is in the west in India. Marked across the plaza are painted lines. For some holy days, there are over 25,000 people attending prayers. The painted lines exist to line them up. If everyone follows suit, all can fit. Otherwise many would have to prayer outside. There are two minarets at the mosque. For a free, one can climb to the top. In India, there is almost always a fee.
