We're dropped by the bus right in front of the mosque, nearby the VIP entrance. From afar, this all white building looks incredible, reflecting the light of the now dimming sun – Its domes and minarets cutting through the clear sky.

 


Finding the pedestrian entrance however proved to be quite a challenge as the two main access, meant for cars, are located on the far east and west side of the site, a 15min walk from the bus stop – without anyone nor any signs to guide you there.

 

Inaugurated in 2007, most of the landscaping surrounding the premises is yet to be done.
