Beautiful mosque. Female visitors are required to wear head scarves to enter, which you can rent at the entrance. Some visitors just want to pose, take pictures and leave, which really hurts the ambience.

Cannot enter during prayer session. Minimalist inside as per Islamic framework. Much nicer from outside to catch the mosque in different lighting conditions.
