Great mosque to visit. Great view . The black and white stone make the mosque look really beautiful. There is a desert place opposite that you must try too.

You can take few pictures in 1 minute and that's it. There is nothing around and if you want to walk to go there by walking or back to the town by feet again it will be a big mistake - so do not let the taxi to leave you there. You are not allowed to come in. On another... More

However, unless you are Muslim (which I am) there isn't anything worth seeing inside. However worth the short taxi ride up to see this Tim Burton-esque mosque.
