A treasure hunt for contemporary ideologies among ancient monuments, this Mosque is a celebration of fundamental and cultural unity. A great architectural beauty, a religious domain and an exhibition venue under one roof. Since last year the building has been totally restored and the Mosque has embraced the new functions which came with this renewal. The result is an amazing museum and a touristic centre. While the Mosque is still in operation, visitors are able to explore this magnificent place from different angles. Shoes are not allowed. View the city from the upstairs Blue Minaret.
