Description

The Makkah Masjid, initiated by Sultan Mohammed Qutb Shah and completed by Aurangzeb 77 years later, is one of Hyderabad’s largest mosques and is one of the largest mosques in India. The mosque got its name from the fact that Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah commissioned the bricks for the central arch of the mosque to be made from earth that was transported from the Holy City of Makkah. Located near the iconic monument of Charminar, the Makkah Masjid is a listed heritage building and is big enough to accommodate 10,000 worshipers at a time. Visitors to the mosque will be struck with awe by the magnificent structure and stunning interior. For Muslims visiting the city of Hyderabad, a trip is not complete without a visit to the Makkah Masjid.
