Unfortunately it was closed to non-muslims when we went, due to Ramadan. Ok from the outside for a photo and 5 minutes, but don't go out of your way during the holy month to visit, as you won't get in.

A beautiful mosque which I had the privilege of praying Friday prayers in. A nice water feature running through the mosque which enhances the architecture. After Friday prayers there's small vendors situated outside which sell food, especially the burger which is a must try.

More or less all day. Just not during prayer times. Go during the day better views and more scenic.
