It took 11 years to complete this immense architecture that covers over 30 acres of Land. The incredible view of Grand Mosque will be a feast for your eyes as it exhibits the cultural diversity of Islam with modern architecture and design. The exterior surfaces of the Grand Mosque are covered in Sivec marble from Greece and Macedonia and its main dome is one of the largest mosque-domes in the world.

Get to the Mosque to watch its rich traditional designs from floor to ceiling, as the name says its ‘grand’ in every angle. Attractions here are in plenty... most notable among them are the world’s largest hand-woven carpet (measuring around 60,570 sq ft. this carpet was hand-woven by about 1,200 - 1,300 carpet knitters), largest marble mosaic floral design in the world, third largest chandelier in the world (that adorns the main prayer hall), glass panels studded with Swarovski crystals, and many more! The Mosque interiors are richly decorated with verses of Holy Quran in three varieties of Arabian calligraphy. As you move around the premises you can see the reflective pools that surround the Mosque, which in turn amplify its beauty!

"For sure we’ll be back"

I have seen snaps of this mosque before. It fascinates me. What a stunning structure! I love how interesting as well as unique its architecture is. I love visiting different religious places and this is an exceptional worship center I have ever been. My family and me spent a lot of time here. Both its exterior and interior are really charming. Chandeliers and carpets are simply awesome. I felt spiritual refreshment as I entered inside it. That feeling of sitting inside the prayer hall has to be experienced and words can’t do justice on that. I think I am really blessed. It doesn’t matter what religion you are belongs to, a visit to this mosque is must. We loved the visit. I wouldn’t like to spoil more surprises for whoever reads this as it is an experience worth to enjoy by yourselves.

"A poetic expression..."

What a wonderful landmark it is. A highest artistic expression of human creativity. All elements like its walls, floor, door, windows, lights, colour shades and everything is unique and we can't compare it with others. There is a big carpet (they says that this is the largest carpet and it is hand knotted!!) Which is so exciting stuff to see at there. It’s a symbol of human creativity, it is sure that thousands of people spend their valuable time for making this beautiful stuff. Both modern and traditional materials are used in an accurate manner. The most interesting thing about this grand mosque is that it is ready to welcome every people beyond their gender, caste and culture. It’s a great thing and I experienced it in the mid of different people with different culture. The perfect shape of the dome is highly appreciable and its interiors are decorated with the verses of Holy Quran. I can't stop my words and it is the rarest thing all over the world.

"The place is awe-inspiring"

The place is inspiring and so many interesting things to be seen here. Everything is well maintained here. Carpet kept in the mosque was fascinating. it has got a wonderful pattern which is truly unique. Chandelier is bright and beautiful. Prayer hall of the mosque is beautifully furnished. Tile works, mosaics, floral paintings are must see. Whatever your religion, this place will lift your spiritual quotient up. Splendor of the mosque is something should feel to the experience. I am little sad as I have not been able to capture everything on my camera. Loved it all the way.

"Outstanding hospitality"

I'm a school teacher and want to make this vacation something new to my life and career. My specialization is in social science always I'm addicted to this subject and that makes me choose this location to explore more related to this. Apart from the spiritual location, it's a place good enough to know more about different nationalities and their artistic ability. The artefacts from floor to ceiling is telling a story of its origin and human efforts. This travel was made with my colleagues so we are on a teamwork to analyses how this place becomes unique in this whole world. So glad to share about this location and about its charming hospitality. I got enough stuff what I expected from there.
