In the middle of the Old Delhi streets among the poverty and shops selling everything from food to old car and lorry parts the mosque stands out as an icon to prayer. On entering the mosque those that are not suitably dressed are decked out in some unflattering material and then charged for the privilege. Although photography is allowed for 200 rupees video cameras have to be locked in lockers for the duration of stay. The mosque is the largest and best known in India with a courtyard capable of holding over 25,000 devotees.
