Built by Sujauddin Mohammed Shah in 1657 AD, Poa Macca located in Hajo, about 24 km from Guwahati is the most revered pilgrimage spot for Muslims in Assam, believed to contain one fourth the sanctity of holy Mecca. To lay the foundation stone of this mosque, 250 g of earth was brought from the holiest city of Islam, Mecca. Thus the mosque was named as Poa Mecca. The complex also has a dargahof Pir Ghiyasuddin Auliya, a reserved seer and one of the earliest propagators of Islam in Assam.
