Mosque of two Qibla's

Historically this mosque is important as the Holy Prophet received the revelation to change the direction of the Qibla to face the Kaaba. Worth a visit.

Please know the history and significance when you visit. Nice prayer for nafil and dua. Be wary of pickpockets, unfortunately.

This is a very historic mosque and should be visited as the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) was given the directive to change the direction of the Qibla inside it. You can see both Qibla directions indicated inside the mosque.
