The Mecca Masjid located in Hyderabad is one of the mist pious locations for the Muslims of India. In fact the Mecca Masjid is an important place for worship for almost all Muslims in Asia. It was built with holy soil from the original Mecca and Medina in Jerusalem. This large and beautiful mosque is located close to the Charminar and is popular in its own might. The city of Hyderabad has a majority of Muslims and they assemble in thousands every Friday especially to offer prayers. The Friday assembly is of great significance for the Muslims of Hyderabad. It is a time for them to come together and pray to the almighty for the welfare of all mankind.
The Charminar and the Mecca Masjid form a great tourism destination group. The region is almost always crowded with devotees and tourists. The nearby shopping zones are just phenomenal for some budget shopping. The collection of Hyderabadi Saris available at the streets of Hyderabad is the best close to the Charminar and the Mecca Masjid. The city of Hyderabad is also known for its street food. being a fast moving city it is difficult for the people to always sit down in restaurants and enjoy long lunches and dinners, what they can always do is to sit and enjoy authentic Hyderabadi cuisine from the street vendors of Charminar.
The entire locality is famous for its non-vegetarian exclusives. The authentic Hyderabadi biryani and seekh kebabs are just spectacular when picked up fresh from the streets of Mecca Masjid. The mughlai cuisine of this region is a bit different from the Lucknowi cuisine which I had the opportunity to enjoy last year. The city of Hyderabad offers some great vegetarian food as well. The fruit salads and sweet dishes like sewain are revered by people of all societies and all ages.
The Mecca Masjid also has a unique architecture. The Masjid is centrally located in the city and for many years served as a meeting point for people cutting across nationality, caste, creed and religion. Even today it stands tall as a symbol of the nation’s unity in diversity and especially the religious harmony of Hyderabad.
