  • Performed my solat for the day at this mosque. It was winter and good to have warm water to do my ablution. Big prayer hall.  more »
  • The place is open for everyone, though some clothing and modesty are required (scarfs for women are available for free at the entrance). You can enter inside the premises and watch the people praying ...  more »
  • The Middle East has not only a spectacular mosque, I like the blue tiles that adorn the entrance with a round dome's was satisfied. Earl looked gorgeous in a toothbrush got to Shanghai missed too, Dooly the little girls are not the only ones to pass each other.

  • The central mosque of the city. It is difficult to find perspective for beautiful photo (from the outside, at least)-trees, wires, machines. Green bazaar nearby.
