Experience of entering a mosque ... Women need to cover their heads (scarves available at the secretariat). Very interesting address on the Embassy Avenue. 5 minutes visit if you are not going to pray.

The mosque attracts many taxi drivers who take up neighborhood parking, litter, block driveways, and occasionally urinate in the shrubbery. The mosque itself is beautiful but needs better management to improve neighborhood relations.

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.
