Jama Masjid, As beautiful as Jama Masjid (Masjid-i-jahan-Numa, Delhi), one of the very beautiful, important and holy places in Lucknow which deserves a unique mention due to the unique architecture and design. It’s the symbol of believe, religion, unity and culture. It can be witness of numerous festivals and religion events of Muslims which celebrated through the entire year. Besides, the beautiful interior, gorgeous outdoor and splendid architecture causes it to be so special. This beautiful yellow sandstone mosque is just magnificent, supported by 260 stone pillars and 15 arched domes which provide ab muscles pleasing to the  eyes. However, Jama Masjid opens all days, but it’s better to prevent during festivals and religion events if you should be visiting for sightseeing tour in Lucknow since it becomes much crowded during festivals.

Located adjacent to Bara Imambara, (Rumi Darwaza) built by Nawab Asaf-Ud-dowlah in 1784 which reveal the engineering of Awadh style architecture, now it is becoming logo of the Lucknow city.

However, travel guides and authorities generally don’t allow that. But if you should be tiny bit lucky, you may get the chance to feel the stairs and start to see the spectacular sight of the town from the terrace of the gate.
