This mosque has a lot of historical value in it. Chose this mosque when I had to do a school history assignment. I have seen many tourists stop by here in buses.

We arrived there on the 30th of May 2016 at about 12 noon but to our dismay the whole mosque is undergoing major renovation and we are not able to enjoy the majesty of this building. Perhaps we will return again in the next opportune.
