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.

Turkey is investing a lot in this country, has many workers in construction... so they offered a (smaller) copy of the Blue Mosk (Sultan Ahmed I) of Istanbul

This is a living mosque, still used by people to pray. It's wonderfully decorated and well kept although when I visited the gardens hasn't been mowed. Nevertheless it's a great place to visit but remember that there are worshippers around so respect is paramount.

This mosque's proportions were copied from the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. It is a pleasure to look at from the outside, and has a quiet interior. There was only an old man sitting on the steps outside when we visited. He was very friendly and...More

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 .

Very nice Mosque, not very old, about 15 years old but with a nice atmosphere, resembling the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Lovely, spacious and shiny-white. Entrance is free, also check out the quirky Lenin monument nearby.
