You can find a few benches in the shade by looking well in the aisles parallel to the central aisle.
I really liked this mosque, because the architecture is so beautiful. I recommend going there at sunset, since you will get great pictures. I would also suggest to visit the surrounding parks - also a lot of good photo opportunities!
Beautiful place. It was really a nice place to take a walk and enjoy the gardens. There were a lot of vendors selling orange juice, sugar cane juice and other snacks. It was nice to just relax for a bit and have a juice to cool off during the hot summer days!
