    We took a guided tour of €3, only in French but the place is beautiful and even though we didn't understand hardly recommend it. It is a religious site so if you are going "very bare" give handkerchiefs so that you cover your shoulders, legs... Inside guide you by a beautiful courtyard, a library, and a lush garden... Very interesting architecture with precious details. Out went to the bar, which is on the same block, by a you Mint. Incredibly delicious! Do not miss it! We tested a couple of pastries which were also delicious. We will return to eat there because I smelled it fed.

    Located near the Natural History Museum, this mosque is beautiful. I came here on June 10, went inside around 1 hour before Maghrib. The prayer room is quite big, luminous, and quite. The restaurant is also very nice. I had couscous with lamb and chicken and it was delicious.

    Jumma (Friday) prayers are at 2.30pm Beautiful architecture and amazing that it was gifted by the French government to Muslims for their role in the war.

    It is a mosque but unfortunately terrible washrooms. Turkish style washrooms are completely uncomfortable. For none Muslims who would like to visit, it completely disorganized in terms of receiving visitors. In front of the mosque, old ladies begging for money is very annoying.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
