Found this by accident while wandering around the side street. Not sure if it's one of the tourist site since there weren't any crowds which was great. This place has so much history. Mostly men, hardly saw any women but everyone was friendly and respectful....More

We walked through the gardens of the mosque which was very peaceful and relaxing in contrast to the hassle and bustle outside.

We took an hour or so walk through the Muslim quarter, including a stop at the mosque. Worth doing if you have the extra time.

Nice to check out if you have extra time in town, but nothing special about this place. Can skip....

I did not know that Mosques were built like Chinese temples. It has similar architecture. This was an eye opener for me. What is missing of course are the statues and paintings of humans. The building and gardens are very peaceful. Strongly recommended.
