Bhopal is the capital city of the state of Madhya Pradesh and is well-known for mosques and temples. These structures are built in impressive architecture style and design. They have massive minarets and beautifully adorned interior sanctums. The walls are beautifully ornamented and the sculptures are intricately curved.

One of the religious places of interest in this city that captures great admiration and attention from many tourists is the Taj-Ul- Masjid. This mosque is one of the largest and most elegant in the country. It boasts of a marvelous sight against the backdrop of Bhopal. Its name means "The Crown of Mosques."

Shah Jahan Begum constructed this holy structure during her empire dating from 1868 A.D. to 1901 A.D. However, the construction was not finished during her reign. It was only in 1971 through the government of India it was fully completed.

Nowadays the Taj-Ul-Mosque flaunts a pink outer façade. The mosque has two huge white domed towers. It has also three large spherical domes.

It is adorned with a beautiful hallway along with attractive pillars. There are glazed marble floorings and a big airy courtyard that can be seen here as well.

Also, the mosque has also a prayer hall in which another hall is located called Quibla. And this is delicately carved with eleven recessed arches.

The mosque is used during the day as a school for Islamic teachings. The three day religious ceremony called Ijtima is held here annually. It catches the attention of numerous tourists from all over India. The mosque is reachable by means of private and local transports.

And the most well-preserved mosque in Bhopal that retained its old charisma is Jama Masjid. It was Qudisiya Begum who built the mosque in 1837. The said mosque is smaller than Taj-Ul-Mosque. It displays towering minarets that can be seen from a significant distance.

The primary attraction of the mosque is its impressive Islamic architectural work and interior decorations. It shows off awesome gold minarets crowned by golden spikes. It is ornamentally decorated with attractive chain of alabaster-white columned arches. The internal sanctum is made out of marble. It is further comprised of three bulbous cupolas. And the complex of the mosque consists of a beautiful small pond.

Many Gods in Hinduism? The Deva & Devis of Hindu Culture - Acharya Shree Yogeesh

Hindus- Which Devi has no Shiva as her owner ?

Laxmi has vishnu

parwati has shiva

saraswati has brahma

prakriti has purush

but there is one devi who is without any Shiva to own or control her??

Mother Dhumavati !! is the correct answer


VATSALA: dear I think mata could not find proper wordings to explain her question.

Here we MUST note that there is no feminine or masculine incase of of God. There is only Shiva and his Shakti.. We symbolically use feminine for shakti because she is the recceptor, and shiva as masculine as he is the player. Shiva is consciousness and Shakti is his energy.

Here question of owning or touching feet or being controlled does not arise, because Shakti is not a separate entity but Shiva's own power

Conntrolling here is not in a domestic sense... here controlling is control of Consciousness over shakti which is necessary to keep universe in rules otherwise chaos will happen.... so there really is no need to raise feministic flag here...LOL

Ranger :Gayatri is not wthout a consciousness to controll her. It is AUM who is shiva of Gayatri.... Aum makes Gayatri and Gayatri makes vedas and mantras.
