|Description||Photograph of the Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad, taken by Deen Dayal in the 1880s, from the Curzon Collection: 'Views of HH the Nizam's Dominions, Hyderabad, Deccan, 1892'. The Mecca Masjid at Hyderabad is one of the largest mosques in the south of India; it can accommodate 10,000 worshippers at prayers. Construction began under Muhammad Qutb Shah in 1614 however it was not completed until 1693 by Aurangzeb. It was constructed from huge granite boulders that were hewn locally. Small red bricks believed to have come from Mecca are positioned above the central arch. The mosque contains the tombs of the Nizams of the Asaf Jahi dynasty from 1803 onwards. This is a view of the main facade with its five arched entrances. The prayer hall contains five aisles, three bays deep. The cicular corner minars, with octagonal balconies, are small in height; they were never carried above parapet level. The capping domes were added later by the Mughals.|
