about taj-ul-masjid

The name Taj-ul-masjid literally means ‘The Crown of Mosques’, which is truly reflected in the majestic architecture of the mosque, a magnificent spectacle in its own right. Also used as a madrasah, its construction was started by Sultan Shah Jehan Begum of Bhopal (1868-1901) and it was completely built only after 1971 by the great efforts of Allama Mohammad Imran Khan Nadwi Azhari of Bhopal.

The mosque features a pink facade, on top of which stands the two 18-storeyed octagonal minarets. These minarets each have a huge bulbous dome, below which lies a main hallway with beautiful pillars and marble flooring. Apart from this, the mosque also encompasses a courtyard with a large tank in the centre. The double-storey gateway in the courtyard, with 9 cusped, multifold openings and 4 recessed archways, leads to the main prayer hall. The Quibla Wall within the prayer hall is ornately adorned with 11 recessed arch carvings and fine screens of trellis work.
