Faisal Mosque, Islamabad

4.6
Completed in 1986 to designs by Turkish architect Vedat Dalokay, Faisal Mosque features a modern white facade inspired by the Bedouin desert tents. Pakistan's largest mosque, this structure boasts a prayer hall that can accommodate up to 10,000 worshippers at any given time. The building also includes a library, lecture hall, museum, and cafe. Although tourists of all faiths can visit this shrine, non-Muslims are asked to refrain from coming on Fridays and during daily prayers. Be sure to take your shoes off before you enter, and dress appropriately for a sacred place of worship.

Where to stay in Islamabad

Islamabad has plenty of accommodations, particularly hotels and guesthouses, to choose from. Look in Blue Area for the bulk of options. With the streets here so spread-out, wide, tree-lined, and new, the hotels tend to follow suit by being luxurious and spacious, although some exceptions can be found. Taking the form of guesthouses, budget-friendly options in town sit on the side streets, particularly around the College Road and School Road areas.
