    I walked from the sliviramakariaman Temple. Walk and 10-bit. I think from raucher station takes 10 minutes. Just see the look that did not come true because it was early in the morning to walk into 10-minute staff. With the atmosphere of the mosques I think Unlike European style building in elegant shades, wonderful. Because this area is very large building with a nice atmosphere to explore and recommend the.

    The mosque was not well maintained as the gates are rusty and wall colors are fading. Very much different feom what i expected, considering the pics are good. It would be great if the mosque committees can do something abt it :) Ps: i went there around 2 months ago
