The Citadel and the Alabaster Mosque

These two attractions are well worth a visit. The Citadel walls are quite impressive and well preserved. The Alabaster Mosque is inside this area and one of the most interesting Mosques I have seen. In many parts of the world only Muslims can enter the Mosque. However, here everyone is welcome to go inside as long as you are dressed appropriately; knees and shoulders covered but there is no need to wear a robe of any kind and women did not need to cover their heads. Shoes must be removed. Pictures are even allowed inside. The Mosque is large and has many ornate areas. Well worth a visit.
