Nothing much to do but only sit quite and relax. Of course appreciating the architecture of the monument is definitely one thing and has to be done by all.

The most astonishing acoustics I've ever experienced. Astounding peace inside! Wonderful experience of connection with the Divine! Visit the place at 10 am when is the prayer time. Check the website for the other prayer times throughout the day. Not open on Mondays.

The structure technique of this building is very interesting. It gives strong space effect in interior. The place is very clear but if you will arrive with metro you must walk a short distance. There are slums on the way, walk only ahead.
