About Taj-ul-Masajid

The Taj-ul-Masajid is one of the biggest mosques in India. Its construction was commissioned when Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar was the ruler here. Construction of the mosque saw many pitfalls and was restarted by Maulana Sayed Hashmat Ali Sahab and Allama Mohammad Imran Khan Nadwi Azhari of Bhopal in the year 1971. The construction was finally completed in the year 1985, with a renovation done by the Emir of Kuwait in memory of his deceased wife. He added ancient motifs taken from Syrian mosques dating back to the year 1250 to the entry gate on the east. The fascinating architecture of the Taj-ul-Masajid comprises of a reddish pink building with a stunning façade, grandiosely flanked by two eighteen-storey minarets topped with white marble domes. The main prayer hall includes the Quibla wall with its 11 beautifully carved arches and trellises. Magnificent pillars adorned with ornate petal designs hold up the high ceilings.
