Built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar by Nawab Shah Jahan Begum through 2 generations (continued to be built by her daughter Sultan Jahan Begum), the Taj-ul-Masajid translates to ‘Crown among Mosques’. The gratifying title stays true even today and the mosque is one of the largest Mosques in India!
A design much ahead of its time (mid to late 19th century), the architecture of the mosque is truly stunning with intricate wall art, high arches, 18-storey high minarets that touch the gorgeous sky and classic use of marble that adds to its grace.

Taj-ul-Masajid Reviews & Ratings
Largest mosque of Asia. This is a very beautiful mosque. Whoever is in Bhopal, should definitely visit this monument. It has 3 entrance gates, but entry can be made from one gate only. Located on a water body, so cool breeze is always coming.

Beautiful place. Love the environment. Such an amazing experience. And get to know the amazing story by guide.
A masterpiece of Moghul architecture and a precious asset of Heritage India. Built in the 18th Century, the monument is simply superb at first sight. A must see attraction when you visit Bhopal
It's a place of worship. A historical mosque. Nothing here for tourists or non Muslims I'd say. Getting entry for non Muslims can be difficult.
