Hyderabad: The over a century old Jama Masjid Aiwan-E-Begumpet, maintained by Paigahs, an aristocratic family and was built in 1906. It is  known for its intrinsic beauty and unique architectural style mixing the Moorish and Turkish features. 

The century old mosque in Hyderabad will be thrown open to people from all religion on Independence day for guided tour. The main motive is to promote inner faith.

According to the sources, the heritage mosque, also known as "Spanish Mosque" for its turkish features, will be opened to the general public of all religion on 15th August, on the occasion of Independence day, between 10 am to 7 pm as a part of " visit to mosque" programme.

 M A Faiz Khan, a member of the Paigah family and 'mutavalli' (caretaker) of the mosque, said "We invite people from all religions to attend the 'Visit My Mosque' programme. This initiative promotes national integrity and communal harmony and it is an opportunity to meet, share and experience the values and culture of the Indian Muslim community,". 

Indian National Trust For Art and Culture Heritage(INTACH), Telangana, co-convenor P Anuradha Reddy told that she had visited the Masjid-e-Quba in Mehdipatnam here, in June this year as part of the 'Open mosque programme'.

Anuradha quoted "It is a good idea... People of all communities can learn about each other. It is a happy thing for other people to go and recognise its beauty."
