  • It’s an Islamic historical place. Nice place for relaxing but you should have room around there and then you can enjoy and also stay for at least 3 nights I visit few weeks ago but wanna go again before winter starts and if you are planning to drive up there so please don’t drive just by yourself you should have an other driver with you so you can enjoy more
  • This is an ancient mosque with historical importance ! Very unique in architecture surrounded by immense natural heritage! Unfortunately its not properly maintained and there is not much initiative to keep the place alive ! There are 20/30 hungry cats at the site and they might come in packs to request for food ! It’s very necessary that some organisation take lease of the Mosque and makes it destination of people from all around the world
