mecca masjid

Mecca Masjid is one of India’s oldest and largest Mosques – it can accommodate 10,000 worshipers at a time.  Located just a few hundred metres from the Charminar, it dates back to the 1600’s and is an impressive place.

The Mosque and surroundings are beautiful; I would have liked to spend more time there soaking it all in, but found it hard to shake the touts and cell phone snaps. (So, I did what any other smart tourist in India would do and escaped to the nearest Cafe Coffee Day.)
