Was so cool to check out this part of the city. The Mosque is so beautiful, and if you visited, don't forget to eat at "Al Refaie Grills" and after the delicious meal, pass by the nearest juice shop and have some mind blowing "Sobia". Don't ask, just try 😅😅

This place is very popular with the locals, and it's still used during the prayer time so make sure to time your visit between them, you will always find people handing over free food.
