  • Amazing cultural mosque.Love it.The old hyderabad empire built this mosque for their religion.So now it is using for a tourist place under by government of telangana.A simple nostalgic 'MECCA' masjid photo also include in the review photo. ENJOY.

  • Certain mosques in India (Hyderabad and Delhi) imposed very high entrance fee for foreign visitors. These sites are historical in nature. The fee is charged to enter certain sections only. Likewise camera or video fee can reach Rs300. Palaces are also very expensive to enter. Considering expenses on visa, flights, hotel, food, transport etc high-fee places are best avoided.

  • A place with a historic importance but feels like its struggling to maintain its feets with time. Need to have some kind of guided tour or detailed description written inside to educate visitors. Other than itsc known to be built by bricks from mecca this place do not resemble any other significance.

The three arched facades have been carved from a single piece of granite, which took five years to quarry. More than 8,000 workers were employed to build the mosque. Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah personally laid down
