We attended as part of a tour group and toured the interior of the mosque with the imam. He provided very informative information about the history of the mosque and about Islam. I quite enjoyed the visit.

I think it's a beautiful mosque. I was very impressed by all the details and patterns and colours. You can definitely recognise the Turkish style (Ottoman to be more specific).
