Went there with my mom in 2015. It was a very nice trip with the guide. The guide is very good to explain the history of The Mosque and give me time to taking many pictures.

It’s a strange building and hard to see how it’s a mosque. But interesting acoustics. It takes someone to guide you to it. Not easy to find.

I do believe it was more a prayer place than a well. The five stairs represent the 5 pillars of Islam
