If you love going to attractions when visiting foreign countries, DO NOT miss the Grand Mosque. Absolutely incredible art work and architecture. Words cannot describe this marvel. Word of advice, you will be spending a lot time outside so don't go when it's too sunny or warm :)

What can I say. This is a fantastic place. I would recommend the guided tours. These are great for information about the mosque, and a primer about the Islamic faith.
For both women and men appropriate dress is provided - but you will need ID to be held against its return. You can of course avoid the need if you wear modest dress (long trousers for men, head and shoulders covered for women).

Sheer size is outstanding....brilliant white marble...but you must, must adhere to the strict dresscode....especially women. Capes available for a deposit on the day.
