When we visited this mosque, it was still under renovation.. However, we can see that this will be a really beautiful mosque. The white mables were being installed. The architecture is certainly unique. It is suggested that visitors dress properly and women wear scarves to honor the religious place.

The outside of this mosque is under construction when i visit it. Look like they are installing big umbrella canopy similar to Masjidil Haram. But the interior was so beautiful.
