05th March 2017.
As part of Triplicane Heritage walk Visited this mosque. The mosque was constructed in a sprawling area  with a large open space in front.   Even though it was claimed that this was constructed during Tippu Sultan Period (1750 to 1799), as per the records available the mosque was built during 1795 by the Muhammad Ali Khan Wallajah, the Navab of Arcot. He is very friendly with Hindus. He appointed a Hindu as a Chief personal secretary. A chronogram in Persian language is written by Raja Makhhan Lal Bahdur Khirat, the Hindu Munshi of the Nawab, is available at the entrance of the Prayer Hall.  The Mosque is being maintained by the Prince of Arcot Endowments Trust.  It was learnt that Hindus are also in the trust, which has to be verified.

The Mosque has a large Pray hall, built with granite stone in Mughal Architectural style with two minaret of 131 ( 40 Meters ) feet high.

There is a dharga on the right of the mosque in the name Hasrath Malikum Ulma Bhagrul Ulum.  He was a saint who lived 300 years before and his body was buried here.  It was told that speech related ailments will get cured if any body comes to this Dhargah and pray. Pigeons in large numbers are the visitors of this Mosque apart from Visitors and Muslims from Various parts of the country.

திருவல்லிக்கேனி மரபு நடை.. 

திப்பு சுல்தான் (1750 to 1799), காலத்தில் கட்டப்பட்ட மசூதி என்றாலும் அதற்க்கான் ஆதாரம் எதுவும் இல்லை. ஆற்காடு முகமது அலி கான் வாலாஜா என்பபவரால் 1795ல் கட்டப்பட்டது. .சித்தரின் சமாதியுடன் கூடிய தர்கா மசூதியின் வலப்புறம்ஆண்கள் மட்டுமே அனுமதிக்கப்பட்டனர். மசூதியின் வெளிபுறம் மட்டும் ஒருவர் சுற்றிக் காட்டினார்..ஒரு நிகழ்ச்சி நடந்து கொண்டு இருந்ததால் உள்ளே அனுமதிக்கப்படவில்லை...
