Beautiful mosque. Hard to find parking especially around prayers times but have to find in the streets nearby. Beautiful from inside, neat and well kept.

Getting a bit worn, but the interior of this mosque is incredibly decorated in arabesque and Turkish motifs with blue tiles. Incredible arches and interior lighting and stained glass windows.

During the European Union Embassies Open House we visited the mosque. They organized a small food and souvenirs market. They had several food stalls with food from around the world, namely Pakistan, India, Sudan... We tasted samosas and a biriani from Bangladesh. Both were terrific,...More

From the outside it doesn't look like a traditional mosque. The line of flags make it look more like a government building than a mosque. Don't let that fool you. It is a beautiful mosque and worth a visit. When visiting be respectful of all...More
