This is one of the best mosques in the world if not the best. It's huge clean and the people working here are very friendly. It's advisable to go wearing appropriate attire. For abaya/kandura it's 2.5BD.

No words can explain how peaceful and calm this Masjid is. The Muslim feels that he is concentrated in his PRAYER. ALL SHOULD VISIT THIS AND DO SALAH
