A refreshing mosque: not overwhelming, not loud, not decadent. On the contrary: a very clean, very simple, but stylish construction, with beautiful colors and symmetries. It even has bathrooms (large and clean), so a stop is almost mandatory during a city tour.

It's just a mosque and nothing much to see here. Nice carpets but it was empty when we were there. It was built in the 90s and it looks like it .

This is fairly centrally located so definitely worth a visit with a guide. Very beautiful inside with nice carpets and great ceilings. I am always nervous to go in mosques alone (as a non muslim I feel like I am invading) but the people were...More
