The Mosque Alhumdulillah is built with beauty and is Masha Allah it is very well spaced.. with loads of place for prayer.. the inside AC is quite good which keeps the temperature cool. the surround system is bit disturbing. Sound inside the mosque is not clear. but outside of the main area the sound is very clear.

Interesting mosque and the opportunity to hear Sheikh Shaatri live was really nice. Wasn't expecting it, so was nicely surprised. Easy to find and walk to from most of central. Lots of friendly people around.

From the outside, the Grand Mosque looks like a large building with a very tall minaret but the inside is breathtaking. The main player area was truly magnificent. Our guide told us about everything from where the wood on the doors were from and why they used that particular wood. The mosque was built with acoustics in mind and it... More

I didn't find a way to enter the mosque. I don't remember why. However, from outside, it looks like a very interesting building to visit.

I visited with little knowledge of what a lavish Mosque would look like. I was stunned when I walked in. It was definitely an awesome experience that I would recommend to others.

We took one of the free guided tours and wasn't disappointed. It's an amazing mosque and the guide was very knowledgeable, both about the mosque and the religion. Not to be missed.
