Great place for classic Islamic design and architecture. I enjoyed every part of it and it is right in the city and easy to get to. Must see if you like Islamic style, really beautiful.

This was a good experience. Even the kids (aged 4 and 7) liked the place and the stories related there to. Also, a lovely place for a few family pictures.
