  • It's very nice architectural creation and design. What a great and Big mosque i ever seen. It's great pleasure to visit there. I seen they keep it too clean and Attractive . And found silence over there. Also their is somehow strict rules. Ladies need to cover hair with scarf else they didn't allow . Also while taking picture also not allowed to take pictures without scarf. Else security will your memories. We visited in day time so now Surely i will visit that place in evening time to see it's glorious beauty.
  • What a beauty this place is! Definitely a must visit. Would recommend visiting around 6 so that you can see both versions - day and night. It turns even more beautiful during the night with moonlight and other lighting. Would also suggest taking an official tour which starts every hour. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and we could access the worshipper lane which is less busy with a chance to click better pictures
