Photographer's Note

The Masjid-i Jahan-Namaa (Persian: مسجد جھان نما, the 'World-reflecting Mosque'), commonly known as the Jama Masjid of Delhi, is the principal mosque of Old Delhi in India and the largest mosque in Asia[1]. Commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, builder of the Taj Mahal, and completed in the year 1656 AD, it is one of the largest and best-known mosques in India. It is also at the beginning of a very busy and popular street/center in Old Delhi, Chandni Chowk. The later name, Jaama Masjid is a reference to the weekly Friday noon congregation prayers required from the Muslims to do in congregation, usually at a mosque, which then takes up the popular name of "congregational mosque" or jaama masjid.
