Another one of my favourite places. This mosque is Majestic. The interior is also beautiful. There is also a meuseum displaying very old islamic things, swords, cloaks etc. Its mesmerizing. Not to be missed at all!

Very interesting. We were with a guide but were somewhat harrassed by small boys and tailed by some folks who came too close for comfort.

The towers were built so that, in the event of an earthquake, they would fall outward and not hurt those inside. The acoustics were built so that, without megaspeakers, 65000 worshippers would be able to hear. It is very peaceful. Leave your shoes with the man who will safeguard them for a fee and they will be there when you return. Hire a guide and you'll learn some fascinating things about the mosque. If you are a white woman, prepare to be stared at and videotaped with cell phone cameras, even if you are dressed modestly. Some of the stares are just curious. Some are not.

Very beautiful and historical Mosque. I recommend to use a guide (negotiate price first) to show you the acoustic mysteries and explain the history a bit.
