About Begu Hajjam's Mosque

Begu Hajjam’s Mosque enjoys the honor of being the oldest mosque in Patna that dates back its existence during the Mughal reign. Neatly tucked at the eastern end of Khwaja Kalan Ghat, this mosque was originally erected by Khan Muazzam Nazir. Later, the structure was renovated by Begum Hajjam and subsequently, the mosque was named after her. This is indeed an interesting fact that the mosque was named after the renovator instead of the founder. The mosque is built using glazed tiles and features a unique architectural style that was prevalent during the Gaur rule. The intricate carvings on the doorway and gaur glazed tile work adds a unique appeal to the mosque typical of the grand architecture of that era. One can spot an inscription affixed in the entrance that record details of its construction. The holy place attracts hordes of visitors throughout the year, but it is during the season of Ramadan that this place turns into a sea of celebration.
