Photographer's Note

The red sandstone columns of the corridor of Jama Masjid - this grand monument of old Delhi is the largest mosque in India.

Jama Masjid is not only architecturally beautiful, but also a place of great religious significance as it houses a hair from the beard of Prophet and also a chapter of Holy Quran written by him.

The mosque stands on a rock or a high platform and faces west. It has three imposing double-storeyed gateways on the north, south and east to reach the courtyard, with between 33 and 39 steps leading up from the street.

Viewers to my gallery might remember my earlier post of the Eastern Gateway. The long corridors surround the entire Masjid, along the gateways. Captured this scene of the corridor, using the full zoom.

ISO 400 was a mistake, which I realized later :-(. Cloned out the wires…quite an effort that was, running all over the frame.
