A huge mosque in the heart of the city, a landmark location in Chennai. Has a decent parking space. One of the oldest mosques in the city.
A superb place to attend the Friday sermons. The Chief Shia Qazi explains the current political situation very well. The mosque is old and historical. It has a place for commemoration beside it. People also call it 'Bada Naksha'. It also has a graveyard in its vicinity.
