If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that Liz and I recently visited Northern India for a short tour of Delhi, Agra, Ranthambhore, Ramathra and Jaipur. Well we are now back and I’m ready to start sharing some of the 1200 photographs that I captured.
I’m planning a series of posts over the next few weeks/months to document the trip – largely these will follow the chronological order of the tour, although I do have a couple of themed posts in mind as well.
First up is the magnificent red sandstone and white marble Jama Masjid or “Friday Mosque” in Old Delhi. Built by Shah Jahan (the Mughal Emperor of Taj Mahal fame) between 1644 and 1658, it is the largest mosque in India with an open courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees.
