The two minarets are distinguished by that each one is a square base with an octagonal part on it, then a circular part, and then a conical part like an arrow connecting to the sky.
Its grandeur begins with the shape of the entrance, as it contains three domes based on columns, lines and plant leaves intertwine in its decoration.
The building of the mosque rises, as the main doors open to the gates of the first halls and is topped by three domes and then the main halls, separated by huge columns.
As for the Mihrab extending from the ground to the sky, three arches overlap in its design, the smallest of which is the arch of the mihrab’s cavity surrounding a beautiful decorative frame, then the middle arch decorated with vegetal decorations and finally the largest arch surrounded by a marble frame and vegetal decorations.
