It was one the the best mosque in Johannesburg that I visit. There are plenty of shops to buy books n holy items. Also, there are few restaurant , grocery and clothes shop outside that you can enjoy your time after praying in the mosque.

Nizamiye Mosque

The replica of the Blue Mosque in Turkey is quite remarkable. Beautiful architecture.
Neat and tidy place with some shops and turkish delights.
So after I visited Turkey I made a point of going to the Mosque.
Brought back happy memories.

Nice place
Jan 2020 • Couples
It is a nice place to visit. Very clean and organized. The decoration in and outside the mosque are very unique. There are some shops around the mosque in the same compound. There is a barber shop, restaurant, pizza and clothes shop.
You can as well visit these places. It also has nice view in the evenings. They do change the color of the lights in some days.

Jumah stop from warmbaths
Jan 2020 • Family
We stopped for juma namaaz on our return from warmbaths enroute home.
The mosque is built turkish style entirely.
Beautiful architecture and beautiful dome feature inside mosque.
Ladies facility very small and cramped. Stairwells are so dangerous and steep and twisted in style. That too in marble. No access for wheelchair or baby pram. Very makeshift curtain for a beautiful mosque.
The entire cistern fell pff the wall onto my daughter in the women's toilets. These washrooms and toilets kept filthy and no helper visible to assist or keep.area clean
Sadly i will not revisit.

Turkish mosque - Midrand

Great Islamic complex with a huge mosque and a few eating areas. Ample parking and great atmosphere. Very similar to the blue mosque in Turkey.

We visited the Mosque with the main purpose of taking photos The gents we met went out of their way to accommodate us We were assisted in all ways possible and had a free hand at taking pictures of the interior On request we were told about the Muslim belief of which we did not know much and for which we are very grateful Definitely worth a visit

Beautiful place of worship
Jul 2019
With its four 180-foot minarets and a main dome rising more than 100 feet, the Nizamiye Mosque stands as a beautiful example of Turkish architecture adapted for its place in South Africa. Said to be rhe largest mosque anywhere in the Southern Hemisphere, it is well worth seeing on a visit to Midrand.

Incredibly beautiful
Aug 2019
I was at a conference in Midrand and since my business partner is Muslim I joined him for a tour of this mosque. We were absolutely bowled over.
I had to cover my hair but that is fine.
The manager/guide was super friendly and took us around and explained everything - most informative.
It is modeled on a famous mosque in Turkey, and the architecture is absolutely fantastic.

A learning experience
May 2019
A few weeks ago I was asked to assist by judging a science project at the Nizamiye school. The creative ways of all the young participants (age around 10 to 16 ) with projects of alternative energy and eco friendly ideas was impressive. The discipline and dedication also outstanding. with a friendly and respectful way of interacting with the adults. It was an uplifting and beautiful experience
