The mosque is believed to contain the remains of the Nawab Muhammad Ali of the Carnatic and the headless body of the general Chanda Sahib who was beheaded by a Thanjavur Maratha general. The mosque gets its name from the tomb of the Muslim cleric Babayya Nadir Shah whose tomb lies within its precincts. The mosque is believed to have been constructed with material obtained from the destruction of a Hindu temple.
