It's a tourist hot spot and I can see why. The striking, pristine white of the pillars, traditional Arabian details like the shaped windows and domed pillar tops with gold accents and flower designs make it a work of art.
It's not just pretty to look at though, its majesty is through its vastness and clean lines from the identical pillars to the polished marble floor. Families and groups of friends came out in droves when my sisters and I attended over the Easter weekend; it was busy, but also organised.
Members of staff are on hand to show you where the guided tours begin and where the (underground) toilets are.
An abaya is a traditional Arabic black form of dress which covers women's bodies from head to toe. Out of respect, women are required to wear one before entering the mosque. Don't fret if you don't own an abaya - the mosque provides visitors with one. Men are free to wear what they like.
