“Very impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

The mosque is open to the non muslim public at certain times throughout the day and night. A long black over coat will be supplied at ladies and men if they do not have long pants on.
You can only access the main pray room used by the men, the ladies pray room is off limits, however from what we saw through the windows it has nothing on the mens area.

The building is spectacular both inside and out, the marble floors, crystal chandeliers, stained glass doom roof and the mosaic tiles that cover the entire exterior of the building.
You are not permitted to take photos when inside the building, however outside go for it.
The is an impressive building that stands out in it's surrounds and well worth a visit day or night.

“A must see”

A very beautiful mosque, both inside and outside. Make sure you visit before it closes on Sundays at 12. Women will be given clothes to wear inside the mosque.

“Beautiful architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This mosque is the most beautiful and it is even more spectacular at night. Driving alongside it in the evenings, I will not get tired looking and admiring the beauty amidst the lightings. Just awesome!
