The world’s most influential and largest religion is Islam. Islam teaches togetherness, faith in god, respect, and friendship. Islam believes in one God or one religion.

People who follow Islam are commonly known as Muslims. Muslims are spread all across the globe with a major density in the Middle East.

In India and particularly in the Sub-Continent, Muslim community came into existence when Turkish Muslims invaded the region. For many years Muslim rulers had ruled and the story of their valor and bravery is taught to students in schools and colleges. Indian Visa travelers can find many architectural monuments across the country depicting Muslim culture, philosophy, style of living, and their rich heritage with a mix of Indian history. Indian visa holders can meet people of Muslim religion. They can also meet their saints living across the country from North to South and from East to West.

Church is a sacred place for all Christians. In a similar manner, Muslims consider Mosque as their place of worship. Indian Visa travelers can find large and small mosques spread across the country where Muslims offer prayers to God, commonly known as 'Alaha'. In India, Muslims pronounce Mosque as ;Masjid'. Masjid is an Arabic word meaning 'prostration;. As per Quran testaments, a Muslim has to offer his prayers, five times in a day from dawn to dusk.

Indian Visa travelers must visit some of the all time beautiful and world heritage Mosques, not only to see them as a monument but to know the great story and history associated with them.

Starting from the capital of the country, Jama masjid is a must visit place for the Indian visa traveler. Here, an Indian Visa traveler will notice the beauty of red marble modified with the ancient craft. Indian Visa travelers can also see the Red Fort from where the Prime Minister of India hoists the Tri-color flag in celebration of India’s Independence.

Moving ahead, India visa traveler must see Begumpuri Masjid, which is one of its own kinds. In Uttar Pradesh, which is the countries largest state with largest population of Muslims, Indian Visa traveler will find the Taj Mahal. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and a world heritage site. Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Akbar for his beloved wife. Here, Indian Visa holders can notice the tomb of Emperor Akbar along side the tomb of his wife, Mumtaz.

Indian visa traveler can also try their luck as it is believed that all the wishes are fulfilled here. Coming down in the list is Fatehpur Sikri. It is a worthy mix of Hindu-Muslim culture and belief. It is believed that the architectural concept has been copied from the famous mosque of Mecca. The next item on the list is Haji Ali. Travelers can visit this monument in the country’s economic capital. The great thing about this mosque is that it is build at the centre of the sea.
