I went here since we where in the area for the embassies (which the entire area is just beautiful with greenery, luxury cars, and buildings). This mosque caught my attention on the way down for its architecture and I made a spot by going in to check it out. It was grand. I use to go to mosques in Toronto... More

It is a beautiful mosque and worth a visit. When visiting be respectful of all rules. Women must cover their heads, All must remove their shoes before entering, be respectful... More
