Architecturally akin to Delhi's Jama Masjid, Sikandar Jehan, daughter of Kudsia Begum, built this imposing mosque in 1860. It is a smaller mosque with two dark-red minarets crowned by golden spikes
Bhopal came to be known as the domain of the fairly liberated, even progressive women, and it was Sikandar Begum who set the trend. The Begum was an enthusiastic reformer, open to modern ideas.
She abolished slavery and built roads, bridges and gorgeous monuments like the Moti Masjid. The mosque has a marble-white fascia with two little cupolas atop it, and it has two vast black minarets on either side of it.
