Lonely Planet review

Topped with a 160ft minaret, this pale limestone structure is the national mosque for American Muslims. Inside, the mosque glows with bright floral tiling, thick Persian rugs and gilt-trimmed ceilings detailed with more Quranic verse. You can enter to look around; remove your shoes, and women must bring scarves to cover their hair.
