Masjid-i-Jahanuma, also known as Jama Masjid is situated in Delhi. It is also one of the largest mosques in India. It includes a courtyard, which is capable of holding approximately 25,000 devotees. Built by the Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, between 1644 AD and 1656 AD, the Jama Masjid cost a total of 1 million rupees. An Imam from Bukhara, present-day Uzbekistan, was the one to inaugurate the unique mosque. At its completion in 1656 AD, the mosque ended up with three large gates, four towers and two high minarets constructed of strips of red sandstone and white marble. The two minarets surround the three domes, which are on the terrace, while on the floor; there are a total of 899 black borders, which are marked for the devotees for worship. Years later, Shah Jahan's son, Aurangzeb, built another mosque by the name of Badshahi Masjid (located in Lahore, Pakistan) which followed the architectural plan of the Jama Masjid.
