Taj-ul-Masjid Road 1/3 by Tripoto
Time to Visit: There is no hard and fast rule with regard to the time of the year that one can visit the masjid. Just visit the place whenever one feels the need to be connected with the divine and make some offerings and say prayers.
The masjid is open all the days of the week from 6 AM to 8 PM
The mosque is also used as a Madrasa and thus one can pay the students a visit (with prior permission) during their course of the study of the Holy Quran. Say a prayer at the Quibla Wall if you must.
Being a place of worship, there is no entry fee charged for those who wish to pay a visit to this masjid.
The efforts to build this monumental marvel began during the rule of Sultan Shah Jehan Begam, who reigned over Bhopal from 1868 to 1901. The work was completed by the year 1971 after havng been taken over by Allama Mohammad Imran Khan Nadwi Azhari of Bhopal. The name, when translated goes on to mean, ‘The Crown of Mosques’ and true to this, it is indeed a spectacle to behold. The place is excessively ornate with its pink façade and a duo of 18 storied minarets that adorn it. Atop these minarets are domes that overlook the main hallway which is filled with pillars and floors made of marble.
