Built in classic Spanish design and architecture by the Paigah family, Begumpet Mosque was completed in the early 20th century. The mosque takes its influences from the Cathedral Mosque of Cordoba (Spain) and the Jama Masjid (Karnataka) and combines it with beautiful Moorish art work.
What is unique about this place is that it even resembles a Church- combining the highlights of some of the best design layouts of many cultures and countries. Notice the octagonal domes, truncated 8-sided pyramids, minarets that are placed at the corners of the structure and the Moorish arches in the prayer hall. Everything comes full circle in the Begumpet Mosque- be it design, influences, religion or art. The Mosque can accommodate 3000 worshippers at one time!
The beautiful quotes from Quran that are showcased in calligraphy in the Prayer Hall fulfils the essence of the Mosque and is a piece of art in itself!
- Do follow the traditional customs while visiting the place including covering your head with a scarf and wearing conservative clothes.

A cool place of eternal bliss. A beautiful and vast mosque is existing here. It's a religious place for pious Muslims of this area. The place has its fame. It's a spot which preaches communal harmony. Regular prayer is done here by Maulanas.
Very Peaceful Masjid... Devotees coming from Foreign countries also... Large ground may be it has a capacity for prayers between 3000 to 5000... The architecture was wonderful... It is a historical place...
Do I need to say anything? It is just wonderful and peaceful to be here against the crowd.
A lovely place and the architecture is just amazing and places like these can't be seen anywhere these days
