Tajul Masjid was originally built in 1877 by Bhopal’s third female ruler Shah Jahan Begum. She wanted to create the largest mosque in the whole world and therefore built this one. However due to less funds, the construction was stopped in 1901 and it could only be resumed in 1971. Thus it took almost hundred years to complete this mosque what we see as of today. It is one of the largest mosques in the country.
