According to popular belief, the remains of the Prophet Mohammed's foster mother also lies at the site. For that reason, it is considered one the highly sacred Muslim shrines of the world.

  • To access the site you need to cover your legs, we had shorts so were denied entry, the site is close to the town but not easy to access. Make sure you have trousers/long skirt to access the site...

  • What a beautiful place to visit. We visited in March, the weather was lovely and cool, nice sunshine. The surroundings are so peaceful here, the lovely turquoise lake, pink flamingos, birds chirping, plenty of greenery. It’s free and hassle free entry, just need to wear mask in indoor areas. The mosque was so peaceful, great vibes all round. Must visit place for all, can spend a few hours just relaxing or perhaps a nice walk around the lake.
  • Really good, not very big but has nice space. Good view of some ruins with easy access. You can also pray there which is wonderful experience.
