Experience The Magic Of Iftar At Jama Masjid In Delhi

Every year, the streets of Jama Masjid are lit up to celebrate the festival of Ramadan with lots of eateries lined up on the Matia Mahal Road selling authentic Iftari delicacies. Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar in which the Quran was revealed. In this holy month, Muslims across the globe fast from dawn till sunset and offer their prayers daily. Iftar is an evening meal where Muslims break their fast at the time of the sunset which changes daily. Here’s a list of 5 best picks we found on Matia Mahal Road opposite Gate No.1 of Jama Masjid:
