Jama Masjid, Delhi

jama masjid

The view northward from atop the south-west minaret of Delhi’s cavernous Jama Masjid, or Friday Mosque. Only from an elevated position can one truly appreciate how hazy and polluted the atmosphere above Delhi is.  The mosque itself is one of the great monuments to Mughal architecture, commissioned by emperor Shah Jahan.
