It was here our Holy Prophet PBUH was asked to change the direction of prayer to Makkah. We could see the previous direction in the opposite at the mosque. It is recommended to say 2 rakats in this mosque.

Historical masjid, Muslims qibla used to be in direction of Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem, however when the Quranic verses were revealed to Rassul (saw), the qibla became the Kaaba in Makkah! Definitely worth visiting!
