Jama Masjid (great mosque), the biggest in India, was built in 1650 in the middle of Old Delhi and can welcome 25,000 people in front of the main building. The three domes made of white marble striated with black offer a striking contrast with the pink sandstone of the rest of the mosque..

La Jama Masjid (grande mosqué), la plus grande en Inde, était construite en 1650 au coeur du Vieux Delhi et peut accueillir 25 000 fidèles devant le bâtiment principal. Les trois dômes en marbre blanc strité de noir tranchent sur le grès rouge du reste de l’édifice.
