Situated at the Chowk area of Bhopal, Shaukat Mahal is one of the architectural wonders of Bhopal. The Mahal is an odd combination of Indo-Islamic and European styles of architecture. Supposed to be designed by a profligate Frenchman, the building is very different from the rest of the Islamic architecture in the locality.
The unique feature of this Mahal is that it is made of beautiful white alabaster and the roof the building is adorned with a series of complicated triangular-shaped arches. The delicate floral patterns of on the exterior of the palace give it a very eco-friendly appearance.
