The main decorations of the mosque are chandeliers, filigree carving on the cedar, gilding, mosaic of their wood and gypsum, as well as Arabic ligature and quotations from the Koran.
In the Ramadan timeline entrance for tourists is strictly by the hour: 9:00; 10:00 and 11:00. Visit to the mosque, as well as the adjoining vast territory: the square, the museum of the mosque, the library and the art schools of the Koran.
To visit the mosque, women should have their shoulders and knees closed. And as a doctor I recommend to take with you WOOL socks, because stone floors with onyx are as beautiful as piercingly cold ...
