Social harmony is the norm in Pilibhit, and while there are several temples in the town, the Muslims too find solace at the Jama Masjid. This more than 250 years old masjid was built during the Mughal period by Hafiz Rahmat Khan. He was later buried here after his death.

The masjid is a replica of the masjid in Delhi, and a princely sum of three lakh rupees were spent on its construction. The walls are in typical Mughal style, but the curvilinear roof shows a distinct Bengali influence. Every week on Friday the Muslims congregate here for the Nawaz.
