Jama Masjid in Bhopal is an impressive structure. The Jama Masjid is the smaller mosque, and was built by “Qudisiya Begum in 1837” and this mosque is resplendent with gold spikes that ennoble its minarets. Most fabulous feature of this pretty shrine is the two large towers that can be seen from a considerable distance. Though a small shrine, Jama Masjid occupies a remarkable place among the pilgrimage centers in Bhopal.

The mosque also has three bulbous cupolas, but the main feature of the Jama Masjid is its interior – a splendid example of Islamic architecture. The mosque contains a series of alabaster-white columned arches that present a very pretty sight, and the inner sanctum of the mosque is built out of marble. The Jama Masjid complex also contains a small pond, and was extensively renovated after Independence.
