  • I visit the mosque not for the first time and every time I am surprised and discover something new for myself. It's a beautiful mosque. Very roomy, in hot weather is always cool, and what a chic carpet is covered with the whole floor, just visual and painting on the walls and arches in the oriental style attract the eye.
