There are numerous mosques in India.

Jama Masjid, New Delhi is amongst the most famous ones.

Rising towards the skies, from the shadows of the Legendary "Taj" itself & thus making "Taj" look & feel even more "Eternal" from the inside of mosque.

Haji Ali Mosque, Bombay, India: The most important mosque in Bombay, India.


This Island mosque/moseleum is 600 yards away from the mainland Bombay. It is only approachable through narrow low lying causeway under low tides. Its the only link to the mainland Bombay.


Haji Ali at Dawn. A breathtaking view.


White marbled Haji Ali glitteres under clear skies & Arabian Sea.


Haji Ali completely gets cut off from the mainland as high tides engulf narrow low lying causeway frequently during Monsoon season. Visitors, partrons & mosque authorities are warned ahead of time by Bombay authorities but frequently ignored. It dangerously traps thousands of people in this Island Mosque.
