Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad is one of the oldest and largest mosques in the city. Commissioned in 1614, it was built through the efforts of by Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah, however, the construction saw completion only in the year 1694. Together with the Chowmahalla Palace, Laad Bazaar, and Charminar, the mosque forms the four very important heritage attractions in the city. Located near the famous monument - Charminar - it can be easily reached from any part of the city.
With a capacity to accommodate as many as 10,000 people at any given time, the imposing facade of the Mecca Masjid is indeed a humbling sight to behold. Its interiors are a testament to the grandeur of the rulers of the Quli dynasty. However, please note that, at present, only followers of Islam religion are allowed to enter the mosque.
