  • Unlike most Mosque's, visitors can view here as the site is also a Mausoleum. On Friday's it reverts to a Mosque again. Superb architecture, craftsmanship and history. The Clock's here were a gift.....  more

  • A lovely experience and the building also has lots of intricate designs. There is a time schedule as to when the gates open to allow you in. The gate opened a few minutes after 12 noon on a Saturday for us.
  • Absolutely beautiful place, definitely worth visiting, stunning architecture and decoration. My own experience marred only by a group of very loud Catalans who seemed to think it was normal to shout to each other and guffaw loudly at their own jokes in another country's religious site. You can understand why mosques and other Muslim sites are closed to foreigners when you see behaviour like this - keep respect, people. 🙏🏼
