  • We pass by in the car and was mesmerised to the beauty of this mosque. Noticed many family made a picnic spot by the side of the lake under a tree to enjoy a breezy afternoon. It is a must to come...  more »
  • A nice building over a lake making with a mirror image of itself. I just love watching the reflection of it's building over the water. Very close by to the beach and easily accessible by car...  more »
  • 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.
