This beautiful mosque has two entrances. One allows you entry to the mosque, for an entry fee of €2. The inside is beautiful, with extensive mosaic and frieze work that you could stare at for hours. The other entry point is to the tea garden and restaurant. Grab a chair and someone will come by and offer sweet mint tea for €2. You can order food but you can enjoy the space with just the tea, and you'll get to point at pastries you want to try if you go just inside the first doorway to the pastry case and buy them there €2 per piece. N.B., there are restrooms just inside that first door as well. The brochure you get on the main mosque side doesn't mention it but this mosque had an important role in WW2.

Walking toward here we saw the cafe area first. This was covered with tourists who were visiting the museums nearby and popped in for tea/shisha also has a restaurant inside. But not open certain hours in afternoon. We headed on from the cafe entrance to the next entrances for the actual mosque prayer area. Outside you will see women dressed in traditional muslim region clothing begging. Once walk past them to the entrance there were a lot of tourists who I think get charged to go in and have a look around. Once you walk in you will see a notice board with prayer time's near the women's toilets area. Once you walk further through the gardens you get the men's wudhu area and the women's prayer hall further on. The men's prayer hall is located near main entrance. Take care with belongings when performing abolition and prayers due to being packed with tourists easy to lose stuff.

We visited their tea room. The mint tea is the best in the world I'm sure! They have great sweets to go with the tea, but there is absolutely NO service and you have to just grin and bear.

You enter the building and are in a completely different scenery. Away from the crowd and only very few educated tourists.
An open and welcoming culture and some wonderful craftsmanship all over the building.

Peaceful, quiet and a gem.

I've been both in summer and during winter and can definitely recommend warmer weather to see the garden in full bloom. When you enter, you immediately see the garden courtyard, and the building spans around it in a square shape. You give 2€ to tour the whole place freely, it's incredibly ornate and gorgeous, the tiling and caved woodwork. You have to ensure you are properly covered to show respect (no shorts, etc). Once you've toured the mosque itself, head over to the tea room for some mint tea and pastries, but it can get quite busy!
