A fantastic place that I am suggesting it for any one to visit
This building is the best Islamic style building in the world. It was designed and engineered very well. This mosque deserve to visit and stay long time inside it. You will smell history there. It is better to read about the history of this mosque before visiting it. That will let you know better and value the things you see. Parking is hard at that area.
