  • Beautiful mosque. The public tour experience is excellent. Very knowledgeable and welcoming guides. Morning tour starts around 9. They also have afternoon tours. Tours are free and they provide water when you arrive. They also provide cloaks for women to wear while in the mosque.
  • GRAND mosque with 5* facilities, but keeping with spiritual ambience. Have tour guide facilities on offer.
