The Shah Faisal Mosque was completed in 1986 at a cost of approximately US $120 million. It was built
through the support of King Faisal Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia, and is named in his honour. It is one of
the largest mosques in South Asia, and has been host to dignitaries from around the world; many local people
from Islamabad also identify closely with the mosque and can be seen in the prayer hall and courtyards.
