As per as Islamic believe is concern visiting masjid qiblatain if you are in holy land is must to visit. The mosque is very neat at all times very conducive place for worship. More than enough rest rooms and places for abolution and other conveniences are there for the worshipers with adequate water supply for both drinking and other purposes.... More

This mosque is situated in the Holy city of Madina. It is famous for the fact that during a prayer the prophet was ordered to change direction from Baitul Muqaddas towards Khana Kaaba. The structure of the building has been renovated and now it is not possible to Judge the old direction.

Serene, peaceful, beautiful is what this mosque is. The place where the Prophet was instructed to change his direction of worship from Bait-al-Muaqadis to Bait-al-Haram(Mecca). A must visit when coming to Medina.

There is a great history behind this mosque. This was the only mosque where Asr Salaat was performed partially in the direction of Masjid-ul-aqsa and Masjid-al-haram when the Qibla direction change was announced during the prayer. It's a must visit place in Medina.
