  • A grand structure all in white! This place was amazing right from the gates. We drove I to the underground parking and walked through the mall filled with the scent of cinnamon. Then to the changing rooms for more befitting attire before getting the tickets (free) for our access. I was in awe from the get go, marvelled by the mosaics, the chandeliers and the sheer vastness of the mosque. It's a beautiful place!
  • A gorgeous mosque with incredible architecture. The rooms are all enormous and the chandeliers are so intricate. Come even if you're not religious - It's a very peaceful place to walk around and observe. They'll provide clothes for you if you don't have the proper clothing. Highly recommended to come as the sun is going down and look at the lights at night.
