“yes .. it is a big mosque”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

yes, it is a big mosque ...
but other than that ... nothing .
it is a relatively new mosque, i am not sure if there is any "historical" story behind of the whole structure..
when i was in KK, i passed by ti almost everyday, so my comment is just .. " yes, it is big " .... nothing much.

“Photogenic sunset mosque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We visited during Ramadan and the mosque was very busy in the evening. It is a beautiful mosque and the reflection in the surrounding pond makes it a top photo snap. My children and I enjoyed seeing the men coming in for worship and they were interested in watching men worshipping through the latticework walls of the mosque. As a bit of advice, we did not find much in the way of restaurants or transport in this area, so I recommend eat first and consider booking a taxi for pickup.

“Beautiful on the outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

After driving by it several times, we finally decided to stop and go inside. The outside is exceptionally beautiful, although the inside is a bit bare. Women-- make sure you cover your hair or you will have to rent a cape from the little store nearby before going in.

“Very, very beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Seen it few times from the bus or taxi, did not go inside but from outside its just stunning. Do not know what else to say but tripadvisor form insists on 50 words. It is close to KK (on the right side of the town if you look at the sea)

The Mosgue was lovely to see. The reflections on the water in the afternoon made great photos.
