Bijapur Jama Masjid


Bijapur Jama Masjid is located 1km southwest of the Gol Gumbaz. This mosque is one of the prime attractions of Bijapur. Jama Masjid was built by Ali Adif Shah I (1557-80) and later renovated by Emperor Aurangzeb.

The architecture of Jama Masjid is worth admiring. The graceful arches, domes, gardens, lakes and fountains - all together present a picturesque atmosphere. The Jama Masjid comprises a large hall, elegant arches, and an lustrous dome with 33 comparatively smaller domes around it. The basic structure of the mosque was build by Adil Shah and the lovely entrance gate was constructed by Emperor Aurangzeb.

Jama Masjid of Bijapur houses a dainty Quran, wriiten gold, which dates back to the period of Adil Shah. It is probably one of the earliest mosques build in India. Jama Masjid in Bijapur is still a place for worship. Special prayers are conducted on Fridays. Jama Masjid is the largest of the mosques in the region. Visitors can climb up to the roof and get a spectacular view of the city. Bijapur Jama Masjid is one of the must see attractions of South India.
