Sultan Shah Jehan Begum decided to build this unique structure, which later came to be known as Taj-ul-Masjid or The Crown of Mosques. It is believed that the construction of this mosque witnessed unusual delays and particularly under the reign of Begums. At times it was due to the shortage of funds or some misconceptions within dynasties that halted its creation. Later in 1971, it was the great emperor Allama Mohammad Imran Khan Nadwi Azhari who with his efforts and skilled craftsmen started its construction and the huge structure of Taj-ul-Masjid was finally set up with all its sumptuousness at Bhopal.
The pink colored front wall with 18 storied minarets in octagonal shapes, the huge rounded white marble domes and beautifully carved pillars ad walls depict a great framework which makes it exceptionally dramatic and leaves the visitors dumbstruck. Besides, this Masjid is counted as one of the most gracious Mosques in India.
