  • When you're on the M30, is one of the buildings that stands out and this time I wanted to see it on the inside. According to see the mosque's front, the entrance is on the right, there is a security checkpoint and Manager has indicated to me where was the mosque, because it is very large. They have a restaurant on the floor - 2, a cafe - 1 believe, the mosque on the ground floor, with many toilets, exhibitions around the courtyard, that deal with the Quran and related topics, and a library on the upper floor. The truth is that I felt very comfortable shoes I, leave shoes at the box office entrance and walk barefoot, gives great peace. Admission is free, even is open during hours of prayer and is necessary to cover the hair with a tissue (they have to pay, should not be available one there).

  • I had opportunity to go on a guided tour and I was surprised. Building done in marble, though it has much ornamentation, is beautiful. In addition, you can eat inside for little money.

  • Islamic center having mosque first floor, accessible easily by mteto 6 circular from Cuatro Caminos
  • We are travellers (musafir) who come to pray Fajr but the people there doesnt allow us to enter the mosque. Quite sad cause there are 3 people but they all ignore us. It's a shame for a Muslim community :(
