  • Faisal Mosque in Islamabad is an icon tourist attraction,at the foothills of Margalla mountain range stands this a fine piece of architectural beauty which ranks in top 10 mosques in the world.  more »
  • A beautiful mosque. Around enough big park with benches and lawns where you can relax. Despite the label, prohibit eating, drinking and taking pictures, all engaged in exactly that. Stalls with food to eat on a parking lot. Nice to lie on the grass in the shade and watch the rest.
