Mosque built in the honor of King Shah Faisal of KSA. A huge structure, it still attracts throngs of visitors from nearby towns and villages. The military dictator Gen Zia ul Haq is also buried in the grounds of the mosque.

I have visited Faisal Masjid with students of Best School System on a trip to Islamabad. It is really a place to visit and explore all of its area. When we enter in Islamabad at zero point, Faisal Madjid is the first thing to see in front of us and attract us towards it.

Huge mosq paid for by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It's mostly empty with lots of trash all over the place. But it is very important that you take your shoes of before walking on the dirty floor. Don't even bother...

This mosque is something else. I have never seen this type of design; very modern, yet authentic. The gardens outside the mosque are nice and well organized. The place is huge. I do recommend a visit.

This is a masterpiece but could use work on the garden to complete the beauty of the mosque. It is worth a visit.
