The as (Urdu: شاہی جامہ مسجد‎, Hindi: शाही जामिया मस्जिद, Telugu: షాహీ జామియా మసీదు) is a mosque in Adoni, India. The masjid is a relic of architectural and cultural heritage.

Construction and architecture[edit]

It is believed that this masjid was built by Siddi Masood Khan who was the Governor of Adoni during the regime of Bijapur Sultan's. The land was purchased from Mohammed Shahnaz Namia by Masood Khan by giving 77,000 and spent the total amount of 2,000,000 dinars to complete the construction of the masjid. The architects for this masjid were Iranian engineers headed by Malli Sandal.

In the front side of the masjid, 15 black slabs can be found, in which the things about the masjid are written in Arabic and Persian languages along with some Ayats of the Quran. Hadith's can also be found. The chains in the left and right minarets of the masjid gives more beauty.
