Place of Worship
“The mosque has become a touristic attraction because of its majestic beauty. Starting from wall structures to the marble, to the gardens ending into the serene, simple yet sophisticated prayer hall with a one of a kind chandelier. It was until recently, the biggest one in the world with 1122 halogen bulbs . The carpet too was the largest hand woven carpet in the world but has taken a second place. The colours are mesmerising and I would highly recommend a visit. it closes at 11am to allow for midday prayers. ”
