  1. About muslim culture

    Mecca Masjid is one of the oldest mosques in the city and the largest. Muhammed Quli Qutub Shah began building it in 1617 under the management of Mir Faizullah Baig and Rangiah Choudhary. Mughal emperor Aurangzeb completed the structure in 1694. The mosque is a granite giant with awe-inspiring innards. The main hall of the mosque is 75 feet high, 220 feet wide and 180 feet long, big enough to accommodate ten thousand worshippers at a time. It is believed that Muhammed Quli custom-built bricks to be finished with the soil brought from Mecca and inducted them into the creation of the central arch of the mosque, which explains the name of the mosque. Women must mandatorily have dupatta / shawl to get entry into the premises.
