Jama Masjid is one of the popular landmarks of the city of Hyderabad. Located nearby Charminar, it is the oldest mosque in Hyderabad. It was Quli Qutub Shah who built Jama Masjid in 1857.

Jama Masjid encloses an ancient Turkish bath in its premises, which is considered unique among the other masjids of Hyderabad.

Jama Masjid lies in the vicinity to popular tourist attractions of Hyderabad such as Charminar, Golconda Fort and Mecca Masjid. Known for its Indo Islamic - Qutub Shahi style of architecture, Jama Masjid is thronged by devotees and tourists alike.

On every Sunday, a large number of devotees gather at Jama Masjid after Maghrib prayers.

"Heritage Place!"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 6, 2014
Jama Masjid is right next to the Charminar. This is a huge mosque but not everyone is allowed inside. Best time to visit Jama Masjid is during Eid. Whole of the old city is decorated and you find a variety of delicious street food. A bunch of pigeons are always present on the front stairs. I love to feed them whenever I visit around the mosque.
