Great Mosque

Great Mosque is visible. There's more beauty in the night. The writings of the Quran can be seen around the mosque. There is a beautiful light around the mosque

This is the biggest mosque in Turkey. Very comfortable with huge open areas. What is missing is the soul or feeling comparing with Suleymaniye mosque.

A very Pleasant visit to the mosque , only minutes away from Kizilay Square, it is modern mosque and open for public, beautiful but nothing special in it, a good spiritual place and one of the local attractions in Ankara

One of the biggest mosks of the world, and feels magical. It is already being used and in the center of the city. You can just visit and go on walking the city center.

it's not an old mosque but as a cop behind me said "sobhan allah", and this mosque is open, really open even in 00:00 am :D. I've been there 3 times and I prayed with them as an adventure in the shia style to see the reaction and everything go smoothly!! I didn't expect that.

Contemporary large building in the shape and function of a mosque; and the central one at that.Aspires to look like the classical Sinan architecture.

Huge outside and inside, with nice perspectives, it is not like the classic mosques in other towns but worth visiting

well if you re only coming to Ankara and wondering about big mosques; this is the only one. If not; spend your time in İstanbul where you can find plenty of them which are the real masterpieces of Ottoman mosque architecture and (of course) of Sinan the Architect. Yes, you ve got the point; unfortunately it is a replica...
