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.

  • Mecca Masjid is one of the famous masjid of Hyderabad city. It is quite big campus and well maintained.  more »
  • After attending the Charminar, I went to this mosque. It has a history of more than 400 years, and there are signs of evil. In addition to the huge courtyard, there are graves tombs in the entrance. This is a nice mosque, different from the design of the Nisia in Malaysia or India. When you enter a mosque, remember to wear appropriate clothes.

  • One of the important landmark in Hyderabad. Very beautiful architecture. Very near to charminar . Lot of birds in there. It is one of the oldest mosque in Hyderabad. Better to come by walk . Limited parking facility. Best time to visit is evening . Good for photography. It build in 1694 . Keep your shoes in the entrance .
  • The Masjid is located in the densely populated area of Hyderabad bustling with people all around, selling stuff ranging from jewelry to fruits to perfumes! But the moment you enter the Masjid, there is this calmness which is so soothing. You'd see people either praying or lying on those marble floors.. in meditation. However there were two things that really bothered me. 1st, lack of regular cleaning and maintenance. There were pigeon poop everywhere. Secondly, there should be better security! I mean, the main entrance had all kinds of checking and frisking. But if you happen to come by the back door, you can just enter without any Security Check! That's something that should be looked into.
  • Mosque not really shaped like other Mosque!! A big & old Mosque as I heard. I found the shape of the mosque little different than other normally seen in India. It was wonderful taking pics and recording my visit there. The mosque is hardly 100 Meters away from Charminar. You can purchase good perfumes here.
  • One of the best mosque located very near to char minar in the Hyderabad city. It was very old mosque.... The architecture of the mosque is too good. Any body can visit there is no restrictions ..... Pigeons attracts you more in the mosque. One must visit place in the Hyderabad....
  • The heritage of hyderabad. One of the most beautiful places to visit and relish. I love the way everyone can go inside visit the place and experience in first hand without much fuss. My pictures does speak about my experience in this place. A lovely place for everyone to visit.
