Being a women I could only see a minor part of the mosque. The actual works can only be described by a Muslim man. Praying in the mosque of such importance was a great achievement

Every traveler to this city shall visit this Masjid to see the actual Qibla direction and the previous Qibla direction. It is narrated that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has turned to present Qibla during mid of Asr Prayer.

It is not a stunning mosque but since there is significant history regarding it, it is an interesting place to visit. It is comparatively smaller in size.

Another huge attraction. Mountains of people, parking buzzing with vehicles, mini stalls selling all types of goodies. Musjid is so peaceful and serene amidst this hype of activity!

This is a great mosque with a great history, yet its one of many places that reminds you of islam eraly days. It includes Uhod mountain,Qubaa and Baqie graveyard. Make sure you take the trip with a local guide who knows the real history not to be misled with information and history.
