Jama Masjid

Mosque in Vijapura (Bijapur)

Constructed by Ali Adil Shah I (r 1557–80), the finely proportioned Jama Masjid has graceful arches, a fine dome and a vast inner courtyard with room for thousands of more worshippers. It is a sign of respect for women to cover their hair and men and women should wear modest clothing, preferably with long sleeves.
