One of the oldest mosques in the city, Mecca Masjid’s grandeur has not escaped its doors. Apart from the intricate designs on its minarets and the beautiful arches, the compound surrounding the mosque has these pretty green doors. The contrasting brightness of the door against a rustic yellow wall has a magical feel to it and it is often a spot where tourists and visitors pose.

Chowmahalla Palace, the official residence of the Nizams, during their rule is also a great place to go to if you’re looking for Instagrammable doors.
