  • Beautiful mosque. The facilities are old but useable. It's a long walk to the mosque itself and there's a long flight of stairs to the female prayer room. The rules on how we dress is placed at the entrance. From the mosque, you can see a nice view of the city. Sadly, it doesn't open 24 hours like the ones in Singapore. I happened to drop my wallet there during ishak and I came back when the mosque was closed. The security was kind enough to open the mosque for me. I'm very grateful for that.
  • Beautiful mosque, it's clean, it is located on high terrain so we can see its surrounding nicely. One thing i would like to suggest is that the wudhu's area is better to have information whether jamaah should take their shoes off or on. I've prayed Duhur and Ashar today and looking forward to have jumah prayer next day
  • It's a very good mosque but has a space constraints especially for Jumah. Try to reach early if you are planning to visit for Jumah prayers.
  • Dramatic hilltop location. Staff will gladly give you a tour of the facility and are willing to spend time educating visitors who are curious about Islam. Why not stop by if you're in the neighborhood?
  • Im islam i love you allah
