What a tranquil spiritual place! We had an amazing visit. If you go in the evening before sunset you see it in both lights. The abaya they give you is clean and comfortable to wear and everyone we came into contact with were friendly.

This was my first time visiting this mosque and I am glad I did. The architecture is beautiful. The mosque is very large and can easily accommodate all the tourists which visit it. You can walk through it on your own in about 90 minutes.
