Very interesting to see that this mosque has been maintained so well. Excellent for a quick visit with the additional attraction of visiting the watchtowers perched just above the mosque. The structure itself is an old mud structure which is an active mosque.

Interesting . Many people are visiting to know more about culture, religion and life style. Woman should have something to cover her head. If it's not praying time you can go inside. Enjoy your trip.
