Mecca Masjid - Hyderabad

Mecca Masjid, the second largest mosque in the country, is situated about two hundred yards from the Charminar. The Masjid was built by the Qutb Shahis with bricks brought from Mecca that were used in the central arch of the Mosque. The Qutb Shahis were not able to complete the Masjid construction, which was later completed by Aurangzeb in 1694. The Mecca Masjid has the graves of the families of Asaf Jahi Kings that are there inside the periphery of the Mosque.
