Jama Masjid The majesty of this flawless piece of architecture, situated on a natural elevation southwest of Lal Quila, does not distance it from the people. Its steps lead down to crowded bazaars on all sides.

This temple is also known as the “Baha’i house of worship”. The petals are made of concrete clad with white marble which gives freshness and transparency to its surface. In subtle contrast, local red sandstone has been used for the walkways and stairs. Around the blooming petals, there are 9 pools of water, which light up in natural light, and this creates an illusion of a lotus floating on water.
