Moula Ali Hills according to me is one of the best places to see in Hyderabad. I have been to this place several times during my Photowalks in Hyderabad. These images are a collection from my walks.
Moula Ali hill is reknowned for the the Moula Ali Darga mosque dedicated to Ali. This was built during the era of Asif Jahi. The Moula Ali Dargah is one of the 11 heritage sites identified by the “Heritage conservation committee” of HUDA. Maula-Ali is largely rocky with undulating terrain. This place is belived to have the hand-print of Ali, the son-in-law of Mohammed.
The Moula Ali hill is approximately 614 metres tall.It has 484 steps from dargah to bottom of the hill and has about 600 tombs around it.
There is another hillock near the Moula Ali hill, called “Qadam -e- Rasul”, on which the sacred relics of the prophet were deposited by Mohammad Shakrullah Rahan, a servant of Asaf Jahi.
A lot of movies were also shot at this location.
The place looks even better on a moonlit night.
