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.
