Built in mid-1800 in the land donated by Nawab Wallajah, On Mount Road, this mosque has two tall minarets and a separate place of worship for women. The mosque also houses a library, a burial ground and guesthouses. It is referred to as the Thousand Lights Mosque because of the legend that over one thousand lamps had to be used to light up the Assembly Hall, which stood at this same spot. This multi-domed mosque, with sayings from the Holy Koran painted on its walls, comes alive during the annual Moharram.
