Its a really nice and quiet place, the building was just gorgeous inside and out and its just nice to see how other religions live and where they pray

I've seen many beautiful buildings in and around Alexandria, but this huge mosque is stunning. Speak an unknown language and you won't be hassled. Go inside and see the beauty.

If you go, certain someone will appoint themselves as the honorary guide and will demand money from you, which is disappointing at a religious site such as this. It's definitely worth the trip to see the ornate domes and beautiful architecture, but make sure to ignore those who are quick to exploit your presence.

The Mosque was stunning, the carpets, chandeliers, the architecture and the ambience was beautiful. I felt guilty visiting whilst people were praying. But I was glad I did!
