Prettily placed in the heart of the old city, Juma Masjid displays a perfect balancing of Hindu and Muslim style of architectural designs. This shrine is built in the year 1423, during the reign of Sultan Ahmed Shah. Built in by yellow sandstone, the masjid takes the attention of the beholder with it’s sheer beauty. Most fascinating structure inside the shrine is its western chamber, which contains 260 pillars with fine carvings. These pillars are the supporting stems of 15 domes that situates in various levels.

A rectangle shaped large courtyard with white marbles with a pool in its midst affords a perfect retreat to the grating streets outside of the mosque. It also guards the serenity and devoutness of the inner shrine. Juma Masjid also holds the Mausoleums of Ahmed Sha and two other illustrious sultans’ of the city. These tombs also express perfect carvings and flamboyant designs.
