Get thee to The Great Mosque. »

This place has seen better days, and that is a large part of its unique charm. A blend of East and, uh, Far East manages to be both striking and subtle. The Chinese and Muslim styles fuse together nicely and the random artifacts and paintings scattered make it worth poking about every dusty, forgotten corner.
