I paid visit with family last week. The grand mosque is not only beautiful piece of architecture but also symbolises our indelible friendship with Kingdom of Saudia Arabia.

One of the big mosques of world, well built but poorly maintained. I think there should be ticket of Rs 100 to visit the mosque to generate sufficient funds to maintain it. All over world historic religious places have tickets for visiting.
