Grand Mosque is a place you should go to visit. We used to go to Eid prayers there and it contain a huge library. If you had a chance to go tour, don't hesitate to ask about any religious questions comes to your mind. In that marvelous place you will find the answer.

At the very entrance, you get a nice welcome (tea/ coffee/ snacks) and then you proceed on to visiting the mosque. Meanwhile, they will provide the proper attire... More

You need to book a free guided tour, and please do so. It is just 30 minutes or so and photographs are allowed. If you have never been into a mosque, this is a great one to experience.
