One of the oldest standing mosques of Aurangabad is the Jama Masjid located near the Killa Arrak. Known for its grand Islamic architecture, the Masjid looks magnificent in every way. This is the largest and the central mosque in Aurangabad, built in the Mughal period which has been restored to its original form by the Archaeological Survey of India.
The mosque, extended by Aurangzeb shortly after Aurangabad was founded is historically significant and a must-visit for the history and architecture buffs. Those seeking peace and tranquillity can also visit Jama Masjid and become a part of the large scale prayers taking place while admiring the beautiful white-coloured humongous structure of the masjid, the open ward and the minarets.
