Taj ul Masajid, Pradesh, India

Bhopal’s third female ruler, Shah Jahan Begum wanted to create the largest mosque in the world, so in 1877 she set about building Taj-ul-Masjid. It was still incomplete at her death in 1901, after funds had been diverted to other projects, and construction did not resume until 1971. Fortress-like terracotta walls surround three gleaming white onion domes and a pair of towering pink minarets with white domes. Try to make the dawn azan (Muslim call to prayer). From Hamidia Rd to Taj-ul-Masjid, an autorickshow costs ₹40.
