  • Old creation is good but at every footsteps they demanding money... Anyway outside of this good market also. And beautiful clear scenario and very peaceful place.

  • A giant and well built famous Masjid of Hyderabad, feels like a wowing place to visit. And for Muslims, its a must visiting place to offer namaz atleast one time. And the pigeons are great attractive for this place.

  • One of the oldest Masjid in India. People irrespective of religion rest here amd enjoy watching birds.

  • A venue marked for historical significance. More than 10,000 people can pray at a time together. You can feed the pegions here. Muslims as well as non-muslims can enter without any restrictions. The feeling is great and one can click as many pics as one wants.

  • One of the most Popular place in Hyderabad! It's also famous for its Architect! Like other Masjids but it's a Jaama` Masjid Which mins more valuable compare to others. But Sadly now a days people are visiting this place for tourism and entertainment purposes!😞 (In other words for passing the time)
