An interesting and informative tour that gives insight into the religious world of Muslims and aspects of their culture. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Fascinating!

We were visiting the neighborhood. We are not Muslim but a member asked us to come in, and showed us where we could watch prayers. It's huge and beautiful. A wonderful gesture.

It was a short visit, but it was really pleasant and peaceful inside. Really large, which you wouldn't think naturally. Very well designed and fits into the surroundings. Not to far from the beach, so is within easy access.

This mosque is at the top end of West Street where 5 daily prayers take place, I visited to prayer not for tourism but a tourist will appreciate the architecture and design

A rather old building refurbished to an excellent standard. A fully operation Masjid ( Mosque). Really worth a visit.
