Description

Mecca Masjid is one of the oldest and biggest masjids of Hyderabad. The mosque is a granite giant with awe-inspiring innards. It took 77 years to come up as the magnificent edifice as it is seen today. It was built during the reign of the 6th Sultan of Hyderabad. The work began in 1617 under the supervision of Mir Faizullah Baigand Rangaiah Chowdary. It took about 8000 masons and 77 years to be completed. The mosque is believed to contain sacred relics, one of which is the hair of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The bricks were brought from Holy Mecca, which were built into the central arch and hence the name. The mosque is adorned with Belgian crystal chandeliers.
