“Masjid in the middle of the city :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

its just show the heart of the city is these Masjid that is full of its own history shaping what is Sudan nowadays. it's just that since it is located near the business district..traffic is unavoidable but it is worth to visit.

“3 security officers and finally "NO"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

when we entered the gate the sewcurity man stopped us. Then asked an elderly man if we can enter. He sent us in a door in the corner. Something he said and we have sent to an other office. Finally the last man like supervisor asked to go to...... the police station to give us a paper that we can enter the mosque. Unbelivable!! We decided that is lost time we limited ourselves to take a picture from outside. Immediatelly appeared a young policeman making sighn that we are not alloed to take pictures. We showed him the "travel and Photo Permit" and left. In the mean time someone came out from the mosque and argued with the driver because he brought us there, obliging him to leave. Conclusion . Dont go . you dont miss a lot anyway
