Mecca Masjid, Hyderabad

4.1
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.

  • Excellent place for visiting and to offer prayers and see the historical art of Nizam's construction. We can also see Charminar from this site. We have a Unani Hospital near to this Masjid.  more »
  • One of the largest mosques not only in India completed in 1687 by Aurangzeb after he took over the Golconda Kingdom. It is believed that the bricks used for the construction were brought from Mecca.  more »
  • Not even Muslim ladies are allowed inside the mosques in Hyderabad so there is no opportunity for women to see inside the building. You can walk around the courtyard bare-footed tying to avoid the pig...  more »

  • There's nothing to see. Only a big space, nothing more. In my personal experience they don't give you to enter in the premises. There's a sign board says outsiders are not allowed. We're Indians, and here we are outsiders. Great. Now you understand what's the value of people other than Muslim religion.
  • 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
  • I have no words to explain the feeling i have after visiting the mecca masjid. The stones are there on which if u sit, it is believed that you will be return to the place again for sure. huge mecca it is. Soo beautifully built. Calm and quiet place which was really soothing. Except that the water which is considered to be holy is not been maintained well.. Apart from that it is a must seen place. Not to see or click pics. Just to feel the calmness at dusk. The pigeons there will really get u a fresh mind.
  • One of the beautiful place I have visited and char minar adds stars to its beauty. The tea available at Mecca masjid is awesome. love this place.
