Mecca Masjid - Review
One of the oldest mosques in Hyderabad and in India, Mecca Masjid lies just 200 yards to the southwest of the Charminar. The mosque is named after the significant religious destination of Islam- Mecca. The bricks of the central arch of this magnificent building were brought from the holy city of Mecca.
The Masjid was the centre point of the old Hyderabad city planned by Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah.

This is an active mosque and not so much a tourist place. It is interesting to see how these historic buildings are still used today. There is no tourist guide nor any information on the history of the building. Adequate attire is required. Many birds fly around the shaded area, this should be considered before removing your shoes
