The Mosque is located at Merkato and is a praying place for all the Muslims in the city. Especially for the grand Friday prayer. It looks great from outside.

The area where people wash themselves before prayer is surrounded by hundreds of public toilets, a little smelly. Beggars surround the mosque asking for money.
