Pic-A-Day Project: Friday Prayers

Friday Prayers! At the historic Jama Masjid, Delhi
Friday Prayers! At the historic Jama Masjid, Delhi

The majestic Jama Masjid at twilight, full of pigeons in the fore ground, is a sight to behold. Add to that the melodious call to prayer echoing through the bazaars of Old Delhi, and you’ll almost feel transported to Shah Jahan’s time. Can you imagine the emperor walking out of the Delhi Gate of his Red Fort, and on to the grand mosque to offer Friday prayers?

Thank you Priyadarshi Dutta, for this wonderful capture!

And friends of Date With Delhi- Happy weekend 🙂

  2. That’s a BEAUTIFUL pic! If I visit, I wouldn’t be able to believe I am standing on the same ground where Shah Jahan stood once. Happened to me in Taj Mahal. 🙂

    Your blog makes me crave to visit Delhi and explore it further every single day.

      I know exactly what you mean! I am often transported to a different world altogether when I visit old monuments, trying to imagine the kings and the commoners of centuries ago, standing right where I am today. Wish wish wish I had a time machine!

      Thank you, Sushmita. Indeed, ‘soulful’ is the word. Believer or not, one is transported to a different world…

    Magnificent! Reminds me of the times I have visited Venice – the birds and the spectacular architecture.
