This is not called the Southern Mosque...it's called the Grand Bazar. It's a copy of the Bukharan Ensemble in Uzbekistan but really just a brand new massive shopping centre with zillions of small stalls selling chinese clothes and trinkets. Visit in winter for better prices and more local ambience.
