Faisal masjid is the state of the art amongst others masjids in Pakistan. The location is very beautiful and calm. The ambiance of the masjid touches your heart and you will be emotionally attached with it.

It was good to see this up close. Makes for a nice photo if there's not too much pollution. We didn't go inside as we weren't sure if it would be safe.

The white facade of the mosque is brilliant to behold and lends an air of serenity to this place of worship. Meticulously maintained, this is the most attractive structure in Islamabad.

Built by Saudi money in the 70s to resemble a bedouin tent, this is definitely worth a visit. The architecture is striking - and there is some lovely calligraphic tiling.

This building is a landmark in Islamabad because of its size. It looks impressive from a distance. At a closer look howver you see it is a rather crude concrete building. I've seen much prettier and more gracefull mosques.
