An ancient mosque, which was destroyed and restored several times over the centuries, Jamia Masjid is a fine example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. The present mosque, an impressive building without an opped dome, was built in 1674. Situated at Nowhatta, in the middle of the old city, the mosque’s main attraction is the prayer hall, which contains 370 wooden pillars; each one made with a single piece of deodar trunk.

The compound is constructed in the style of a Mughal Garden, with two wide paths. This spacious mosque can accommodate 30,000 people at one time during prayers. Taxis can be hired to reach the shrine. Rozabal shrine is a nearby attraction that can be visited.
