Thousand Lights' Mosque

This is a beautiful cream-colored, multi-domed mosque with walls bearing recently-painted sayings from the Holy Koran. It stands at the junction of Mount Road and Peters Road in an area known as Ayiramvilakku (Thousand Lights), which derives its name from the ancient practice of profusely lighting this triangular wedge of hallowed Muslim buildings. The original mosque was constructed here by Nawab Umdat-ul-Umrah in 1800 for the assemblage of Shias during Muharram mourning.

Sydenhams Road, Chennai-600 006
