  • Beautiful mosque, somewhat hidden amongst the trees. Beautiful from all angles. Calm and serene atmosphere both outside and inside. Definitely a must see in KT
  • A LITTLE GEM It was sheer coincidence to discover this mosque. The boys were looking around for a mosque to attend Friday congressional prayers near our accommodation and as we were leaving,there it was by a small body of water not what I thought from looking at pictures. I used to think it was floating on a lake but no.I've been to at least three mosques by the water that were more vast.Nonetheless, it was serene, almost sparkling on the sunny day. I went to pray the next morning.There was one family who were resting under the gazebos.
