Makkah Masjid, Hyderabad

About Makkah Masjid

Though Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah began the construction of this stunning piece of memorial in 1617, it was actually completed in 1694, after 77 years, by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzed. This is built using bricks made from the soil brought from Mecca and so the name. The mosque has three arched facades carved out of a single piece of stone and is said to have taken five years to quarry.

Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, the French explorer, is quoted saying “this mosque would be one of the grandest monuments in India”. The structure is located just a few minutes away from Charminar.
