Mecca Masjid

Near the center of the citadel, a lofty wall encloses the Mecca Masjid, so called because it is said to be an exact imitation of the mosque at Mecca. It is one of the prettiest as well as the smallest mosque in Vijayapura. It stands in the center of a paved yard, and is surrounded by an arched corridor supporting a terrace which runs around the mosque on a level with roof. The general style of the building and its architectural details seem to belong to the reign of Ibrahim Adil Shah II and perhaps built under the supervision of Malik Sandal.
