English: Bijapur Jama Masjid, built between 1557 and 1686, is the largest and the first constructed mosque in Bijapur, Karnataka. One of the finest mosques in India, it is a massive structure with huge onion-shaped domes.

It was constructed during the period of Adil Shah I, a ruler of Adil Shahi Kingdom, to commemorate the Talikota victory. Later during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, many alterations were made and a gateway was erected on the eastern side. He also painted the floor with 2,250 squares for the worshippers.

Jama Masjid holds a copy of Koran, written in gold. It also has a large hall that is divided into 45 compartments. The Barah Cummon created with twelve interleaving arches is where programs are staged.
