Yeah, you read that right - Spanish Mosque! Without a doubt, the most unusual mosque I have ever seen. If you've been to the old airport in Begumpet, chances are, you've spotted the golden minarets of this little mosque glinting in the sunlight.
This gorgeous example of Moorish architecture in Hyderabad was built in 1906 by the Paigah Nawab Iqbal-ud-Dowla. He is said to have built this, inspired by Spanish architecture after a tour of Europe.
Check this out if you'd like to read more about the mosque.
