Mecca Masjid, Hyderabad

4.2
One of the oldest mosques in Hyderabad and one of the largest in India, Mecca Masjid stands tall as a remarkable granite structure with an intricate interior. After almost 77 years of work by 8,000 masons, the structure made of bricks and soil brought from Mecca was finally completed in 1694. Admire the three impressive arched facades, carved from a single piece of granite. The imposing mosque can accommodate 10,000 people at a time. Grab a seat by the pool outside and enjoy its magnificence.

  • Good religious place. Big, clean and spiritual place to be in. There is dress code for girls and have to removed footwear's at stall. Inside there is fountain where you have to washes your feet and hands before getting into Masjid. During there prayer time they only allow there case people. Location near Charminar, very busy street and goods option to come here by walk.
  • Awesome place. Pigeons in the vicinity is added beauty. Right opposite to charminar. Take time and spend time will feel very relaxed. Enjoy street food and fruits here its really worth a lot
  • Serenity at its peak! This place and its location is so good that it attracts thousands of tourists everyday. People can experience good street shopping near the masjid. Moreover charminar nearby is also another another tourist attraction which makes the entire place crowded all the time.
  • Masjid. No word to explain. Peace and God grace is here. Large open space is there. U can spend time after prayers in fresh air. Birds are surrounded there. Market area is there. Charminar is next to that. Shopping, historical tourist spot and devotional. All 3 in one place. Happy to be here.
  • Very beautiful and India's largest mosque. Is a great historical building. One of the famous heritage of India.
