“Islamic extravaganza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This immense, spectacular building is clearly designed to impress, which it duly does. White marble and floral ceramics throughout. One of the most impressive man made things I have ever seen. Probably the only comparison is with Europe's great cathedrals.

“a very beautiful culte place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Very nice welcome, women who come without appopriate dress are given a black dress which covers shoulders, knees and head for free. A very beautiful mosque, with beautiful flower design on floor and walls. A new building, without any historic background but in any case interesting to visit.
