Constructed in the 1930s by South Indian Muslims, the mosque is one of around a dozen that serve the city’s Muslims and it stands on the site of an earlier mosque. Home to four minarets, tall spires typical of Indo-Islamic mosques, they’re not used for the call to prayer.

Across the street are several restaurants catering to the Muslim crowd by serving halal food. Remember to dress conservatively, meaning no tank tops, and remove your shoes before entering.
