Had a lot of fun in that wonderful village. The mosque is little but splendid and well conserved, it's a must in the area.

This building is small and very simple compared with the great mosques elsewhere. As an example of an everyday rural place of worship it was very moving. Its location on the hill gave superb views over the glorious countryside through which the visitor passes to...More
