Hayat Bakshi Begum Mosque and Sarai

Hyderabad District

The centuries-old Hayat Bakshi Begum Mosque has been restored with its resplendent beauty. The imposing mosque, based on Qutub Shahi architecture, on a raised platform, which overlooks the 133 rooms on either side, is a unique structure.

With the efforts of the State Department of Archaeology and Museums, the mosque has been gaining prominence once again. Out of the 133 rooms, restoration works have been completed for 45 rooms while the remaining 98 rooms are expected to be completed this year by the archaeology department. There is also a large well 'Hathi Bowli' on one side which reminds one of the far sightedness of the builders who kept in mind the needs of travellers.

The archaeology department is also planning to bring Hayat Bakshi Begum Mosque back to life. The archaeology and the tourism departments are planning to develop the mosque as a tourist spot.
