The green vines and shrubs growing on the this 200 year old mosque's high minarets almost gives it the impression of wearing a laurel wreath. It is a striking, bold and white building, and looks like something you might find in Arabian Nights story. There is an interesting legend to its founding - ask the locals about it. More than its looks though, the mosque is revered as the final resting place of Seyedina as-Sheikh Usman Siddique Ibn Ahdurrahman. There is shrine to him inside that many come to pay respects to. There are always a sea of pigeons around.

Dawatagaha Jumma Masjid And Shrine Reviews & Ratings
This place feels eerie! Used to love going here to pray, until they started telling me to do things like pour oil and tie coins...! It made me feel like some black magic witch or something! I quit going there after that!
centrally located mosque dates back to 18th century Saint from Yemen sheikh Uzman woliulla
Masallah good nd nice mosque
Place is an attraction of tourists and always packed with pigeons. You'll smell that. It's very old huge and white. when compared with facilities it's an average mosque.
My one of the favorite place i visited couple of times for prayers.. very busy street located on townhall area.. car parking available.. female can also pray there.
