  • A beautiful 18th century European baroque style mosque, with many stain glass windows. Quiet and serene, a peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of the grand bazaar right next door.
  • Must visit when in grand bazaar. Didnt understand the Friday sermon. Beautiful and calming. Fantastic marble architecture. Friendly staff!
