A place not to be missed if you come to visit Islamabad.. There will be a place for you to put your shoes (with minimal charges) and you can tour the mosque by your own. However, you cannot enter the praying area outside the praying time. They reserves some space for you to pray just outside the main praying area... More

Its a great place to visit. A marvelous piece of architecture. But be careful of the extremely slippery stairs under rain or a water wash. Bad slips do occur.

Faisal mosque is one of the beautiful mosques of the world. It's located at the side of green margala hills, which increases its beauty and scenic view. One must come and see the combination of nature and Islamic architecture.

One of the most beautiful places to visit. It is a magnificent architecture. With the surrounding views of mountains and nature and location this is a place you must visit. The building it self is a marvel and you won't have enough of looking at it. Especially at night when approaching in your car you can see it lit up... More
