The Dome Chamber
The dome chamber is the most remarkable part of the southern section. Its 38-meter-high dome features with acoustic quality meaning that if you make a light noise exactly under the dome, a loud echo is heard. Look at the ceiling, this magnificent untouched art is the symbol of the sky. If you look more carefully you will see that everything is inspired by the nature here; as if you are walking in the four-season garden. There are eleven niches (mihrabs), in the mosque that the most exquisite one is located here. This marble niche is ten feet height in three feet width, which is topped with a cupboard holding a Qurʾan . Located next to the niche, an exquisite marble pulpit is the gem of the dome chamber.
During the prayer times, the mosque is not open to the visitors.
