  • I'd say mosque in home style, and when I need to pray and remember my loved ones gone, I come here in summer, spring is an ideal place to stroll through the alleys, broken next to the mosque. Behind the Park and fountains are well looked after. I like its location, because I can at lunch from the Office come here and relax the mind.

  • I am not muslim, but went with a friend. The prayer call was quite beautiful and the mosque is stunning. If you are muslim you need to visit, otherwise it is worth the view.
