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.

    Historical mosque...yes its built with stones from mecca (saudi arabia) but not all of the stones... if you wish to see those stones ..catch some local working in the mosque...he will take you to the front wall from outside...and show you which stones are from mecca...they are a bit darker shades then the rest of the stones.... Also heard that this mosque also containes the hair and tooth of prophet Mohammad (SAW) and it is displayed on the eve of Shab e miraj and Shab e qadr...
