Tour the Shah Jahan Mosque

The tour at Woking Mosque is like no other because it is the first known purpose-built mosque in Britain. Built by Dr. Leitner who was born a Jew, raised a Christain, studied in the Madrassas of Istanbul. Originally established as part of the Oriental Institute and included at the time a Museum. The Shah Jahan Mosque is its official name after the Begum Shah Jahan, the Nawab Begum of the princely state of Bhopal of India.
