  • The mosque is really very big. But finally we go through it pretty quickly because it does not present anything exceptional.

  • This huge mosque is not always to be visited inside, sometimes you can only look inside through sticky windows.

  • Amazing place to visit as a very beautiful monument in Islamabad. Enjoy it's beauty in the springs when the climate is moderate and you could experience it's full view. It has one of the most unique architect with many fountains. It looks the best in the evening as all the mountains circulating it are visible. Must enjoy on a family vacation.
