  • What distinguishes this mosque is the presence of 4 pieces of sacred Black Stone originally located in the Holy Kaaba in Mecca. The presence of these pieces of sacred stone for Muslims is strange and suspicious. These pieces must return to their original place in Mecca, and the insistence on keeping them in Turkey is a kind of robbery.
  • Staying next to a Mosque is very convenient for one who wants to offer prayers to Allah at the time of the prayers. Great architecture from both outside and inside.
  • Very friendly people around here for a beautiful place. As tourists we were a bit shy going inside but we were greeted with big smiles!
  • Beautiful mosque. Beautiful Athan and recitation. Clean and well kept
  • Mr Kamar who looks after the mosque was very welcoming and explained to us the history. it was a very lovely visit and we all loved it.
