We were visiting the neighborhood. We are not Muslim but a member asked us to come in, and showed us where we could watch prayers. It's huge and beautiful. A wonderful gesture.

It was a short visit, but it was really pleasant and peaceful inside. Really large, which you wouldn't think naturally. Very well designed and fits into the surroundings. Not to far from the beach, so is within easy access.

A rather old building refurbished to an excellent standard. A fully operation Masjid ( Mosque). Really worth a visit.
