  • One word; beautiful. It was so peaceful and lovely. Wind blowing nicely creating a calm breeze. At one point, worship started and the prayer pouring from the mosque was so beautiful and serene. I truly enjoyed being there and would love to go back. Its amazing to be in a culture where all or the greater majority share the same worship and religious belief. Wish we had that and truly were one nation under God...amen
  • Divine and stunning. Very clean and extremely well organized. Takes around two hours to complete the look around. Will get wheel chair access to senior citizens. One needs to maintain the strict rules and dress code required to enter a sacred place. Women devotees will be provided with purdah and that's mandatory. Men would require to adhere to decent dress code. No shorts and sleeveless t shirts etc.
