This is a huge landmark. The architecture is typical to the region and the size immense. There is a roundabout near the mosque with trees and plant well laid out. Public Parking is available close by.

Actually, the security guard was angry when he saw us taking photos outside. The 2 guards said we couldn't. Again, politely, we said we had... More

We can not let visitors in without any tour guide I am afraid, even if the visitors were in a hurry and only wants to stay for... More

Very good location at the corniche close to the old souq Al Mubarakia. It's large with an amazing interior that was refit couple of years ago. The exterior doesn't reflect the beauty of the interior
