Jama Masjid, Old Delhi


Jama Masjid is the principal mosque in Old Delhi, India.

We took a rikshaw ride (nice blog about that here) to see it during the dawn, but we never entered the mosque itself. The market in front of the mosque was interesting enough.

    Fairytale architecture… but so many people. The colours of the fabrics seem preternaturally bright. What are the overriding odours?

    • Good question about the odours … I’m not even to try to describe the great mixture of smell of food and flowers, bodies and business, dirt and dyes … But read this blog http://bit.ly/X0GYVH, it gives a good introduction to the different smells of India.

        Thanks, that was an excellent post about India. This will appear as anonymous again because the wordpress link isn’t working. Cheers, Rigby.
