Limited opening times and you need to dress appropriately. It’s not expensive and well worth a visit. You can peer into the separate male and female prayer rooms. Some information boards inside. Impressive as it seats about 1000 people.

It is always amazing to experience different cultures and history. We booked through our hotel with a tour guide which was quite cheap. He was kind and he really knew his stuff. The structure of this place was beautiful

The tiles are beautiful. The mosque is no longer used for educating the young, so we are lucky that the historic building is kept in reasonably good condition. A custodian cleans the tile floor, so that in the event of rain, the water flows into...More

This is a very old mosque which is being kept in a great shape . Open to all visitors . Daily guided tours by the locals can be joined at almost all times for small amount of money . A nice mosque.
