Renovations taking place to the Mosque, non Muslims not allowed inside, not worth going to just see a green roof.

Actually nice from outside with its green roof... but there's nothing else to say about it, since one cannot enter the place

You can only see the mosque from outside but it somehow has a very Calm atmosphere in this crowded and Loud city. Recommendation: be close to the building during prayer Time. It is amazing to Listen. Especially at Night.

Non-muslims are not allowed in the mosque, but the architecture you can see from the exterior is amazing. Non-muslims, however, can go inside the near by Ben Youssef madrasa, which is also amazing.
