mosques in India. Mecca Masjid is a listed heritage building located in the Old City of Hyderabad close to the historic landmarks of Charminar, Chowmahalla Palace and Laad Bazaar. Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah, the fifth ruler of the Qutb Shahi dynasty commissioned bricks to be made from the soil brought from Mecca, the holiest site of Islam and inducted them into the construction of the central arch of the mosque, thus rendering the mosque its name.
It is REALLY a building with fascinating traits and very detailed! I love this photo !!!!!
