Faisal Mosque Reviews
La mosquée est vraiment très grande. Mais finalement on la parcourt assez vite car elle ne présente rien d'exceptionnelle. more »The mosque is really very big. But finally we go through it pretty quickly because it does not present anything exceptional.
Diese riesige Moschee ist nicht immer innen zu besichtigen, manchmal kann man nur durch klebrige Fenster ins Innere schauen. more »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.
