Pros: -Entry by donation -Friendly staff -Cameras allowed -Well-preserved interior Cons: -None Notes: -Remove footwear before entering. -There are several cafes within close proximity. I recommend Ruya's Cafe (next to the mosque, last arch) for reasonably priced food and drink.

Not really worth a visit in my view - the mosque is empty with nothing to see apart from an extensive striped carpet. None of the original stained glass or other artifacts of a cathedral exit it is merely an empty shell - but no...More
