  • Beautiful mosque, Islamic area women take scarf to cover the head and ask permission. Place of peace and reflection, very simple and with good opportunities, it is prohibited to take wear shoes with the Lady at the entrance and pay $1.00. Is a historic Palace, enjoy a visit the same day as the Charminar and Chowmahalla Palace

  • Great ! Magnificent movement for me. Now, I am starred at second largest mosque in India.I was splendid, by looking at its granite construction. Surprise to hear, the central arch of the mosque was constructed from the soil brought from Mecca,in Qutb shahi dynasty. It's glorious at night time is delectable,especially at festive seasons(Ramzan,Moharam,etc.,). It's grandeur is enthral with 'Charminar' which is there north side to it.Felt marvellous, when devotees were offering prayer at this place.
  • Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah, the fifth ruler of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, commissioned bricks to be made from the soil brought from Mecca, the holiest site of Islam, and used them in the construction of the central arch of the mosque, thus giving the mosque its name.

  • One of the oldest mosques in Hyderabad and India, the Makkah Masjid is also one of the largest Islamic centers of worship in India. The bricks of the mosque are said to have been built with the soil brought by the rulers of Qutub Shahi Dynasty. The construction was completed in 1694 and is built in a highly ornamental Indo-Islamic style.
