I wish I could have gone inside the mosque as it only allows men or women with scarves. Please be forewarned to bring a scarf if you want to go in. My husband said it was pretty nice inside.

makes for a nice short visit. Only muslims are allowed into the mosque, others can walk around the graveyard looking at the mausoleums
