  • It is one of the most important mosque in the Islamic history. This actually was the first mosque built by the Muslim. It has a great significance for muslims around.
  • Lovely place, so peaceful and agreeable. Clean and well taken care of. Parking isn’t that easy to find at peak times so come in mornings or in between prayers. Nice little market next to it.
