Poa Mecca
 

Poa (Powa (1/4th) Mecca is the holy shrine of the Muslims situated near the Hayagriva Madhava Temple at Hajo. It is said that the foundation of the mosque partly consists of some earth brought from Mecca. There is also a belief that praying here will give one-fourth the sanctity of Mecca and hence the name. According to the inscription on the wall of the mosque, it was built by Mir Lutufullah-i- Shiraji, in 1657 during the reign of the Mughal emperor Shajahan. In front of the mosque lies the tomb of Pir Gyasuddin Aulia who made the first attempts to propagate Islam in this part of the world.
