“All Wooden All Spiritual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

It is amazing mosque by his athmosphere. Notice the exits if you visit. After praying you wont go out by turning the entrance. You directly go out by walking though forward. Why? Because of not turning your back to Kiblah. This is the philosophy of Arap Mosque from the year of 717 !!!

It is nice mosque which was originally church... Arches and columns are making this place different in the city...
