The Dhoop ghadi and map of the world in Jama Masjid, Delhi 

, Hazrat-E-Dilli

Since namaz is governed by time and position of the sun, a dhoop ghadi is but natural inside Masjid e Jahannuna aka Dilli’s Jama MasjidUnfortunately since we care nothing for our heritage we misuse everything. I’ve seen people sitting and standing on the dhoop ghadi

These seem to have been added in the mosque in 20th century from the Hijri date given on the sundial 

There another round stump next to dhoop ghadi. I’m sure it must have contained something important now lost your us

But do we care!

I’m sure this stump must have been something too. Now lost to us forever

And what’s a Masjid-i Jahān-Numā (World-reflecting Mosque) without a map of the world but do we care? 

I never realised there was something like this here as I’ve always seen people standing or sitting on it.

Abu Sufiyan had to point it out to me.
