Faisal Mosque, Islamabad

(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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.
