  • This historic lake mosque is an important Muslim pilgrimage destination. peaceful space. surrounded by beautiful nature not least garden religious atmosphere. many cute cats. And best of all, you can see a lot of flamingos. love the place.
  • This is a beautiful Islamic historical site. The history behind it is conveys the story of a civilization. Moreover, the fact that it was restored by the USAid in 2001 and is open to everyone regardless of faith attests to a beautiful coexistence of humanity - the way it should be.
