Old mosque

An old mosque from the 17th century, with interesting architecture and unique minaret. Not much to do here, though.

We had a great guide so he made all male city interesting and nice. He knows a lot stories about the king, the government, the war, the religion. Indeed he brought us to a shop to wait for rains stopping, but he didn't push us to buy anything.

I wish I could have gone inside the mosque as it only allows men or women with scarves. Please be forewarned to bring a scarf if you want to go in. My husband said it was pretty nice inside.

Sometime we can see the the color was faded because of not maintaining properly. I addition to this, history of mosque is required in writing like information Board. It can mention how develop and renovated mosque till today.

One of the few preserved mosques in the city. Calm and peaceful surroundings . The tombstones in the courtyard adds to history of the mosque.
