  • The biggest and newest mosque in the city of alamty. A large mosque. Keep an eye out kilometers away the dome. As our mosques not a matte color. On the contrary, they have the dome too gaudy.

  • In the mosque of the Islamic Green bazaar walk 10 minutes to the North. Not be pinned has visited several times, though free is good. However it is recommended to watch quietly because the inside is a place of prayer.

  • When we first came here we are already in the wrong place, I think, and we found ourselves in the banks of the marriage. Then we went to divide read the Quran. There's nothing like that in Turkey, I think the first time I've seen something like this. I hope I will go again.

  • This place is beautiful from the outside. I wasn't sure what to do to enter the mosque, but it sounded like there was a service, so I stayed out, not being a Muslim and wanting to respect service attendees. Beautiful gold domes.
