Jama Masjid

A monument and a worshipping place combined makes this place one of the most sought after attractions in the heart of Burhanpur – the Jama Masjid. It is located at the very center of town in Gandhi Chowk.

The construction of this place began during the Farooqi rule. Unfortunately, the construction took way too long and couldn’t finish in time before Farooqi leader Adil Shah’s demise. The work was then supervised and completed by Emperor Akbar. There are two big minarets that rise majestically across the Burhanpur skyline. The Jama Masjid also has three round cupolas. The monument has some very majestic artwork on its symmetric pillars and all this has been conserved very well.
