Moti Masjid Bhopal : This reminded me of Jama- Masjid Delhi, you could say a smaller replica of it when comes to architecture, the marble faced shrine with red minarets and gold spiked cupolas. The Moti masjid Bhopal located in the heart of city, popularly known as Pearl Mosque symbolizes the history of Begums in Bhopal.  The shrine was built long back in 1860’s by Begum of Bhopal Sikander Jehan.

About Author :

"Hi there, my name is Lalit Chandran. I currently reside in ‘Pink city’ i.e. Jaipur where I run a garment export business. Having spent all my childhood in Rajasthan, I fell in love with Indian history and all its glory. So, whenever I get an opportunity, I travel to various places all across India exploring old cities, museums, forts and historic monuments. This blog will catalogue all the places I have visited, people I have met along the way and different cultures I got a chance to experience.

I am hoping sharing all my adventures will help raise awareness about our ancient heritage and maybe help preserve and protect these remnants  of India’s glorious past. Feel free to leave your comments. "
