Jama Masjid, Overview from Minarets (tower)
New Delhi
Jama Masjid, You are actually looking 6 different window opens from inside this minaret (tower), looking across the courtyard you can see the matching tower. On a clear day like this you also get a good view of the Red Fort. The Jama Masjid in Delhi is the largest mosque in India and was built between 1644 and 1658 during the reign of Shah Jahan. Originally known as the Masjid-i-Jahanuma, or 'mosque commanding view of the world', the mosque is built of colossal proportions and has a courtyard, which can accommodate 25,000 devotees. Made of sandstone and white marble, the mosque has three gateways, two 40m high minarets and four towers.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
