Mosque Architecture

I love finding exploring new mosques. I love admiring the details put in by the builder and reflecting on the Islamic patterns used in the design that seem to never get old or go out of style. We recently found a new mosque in Dubai. I don't know the official name of it, but it is located in the Jumeirah Beach area near Burj Al Arab. It was simple, but so beautiful I had to share pics that Z1 and i took of it. Since we were there for the Taraweeh prayers, all the pics are taken at night.

Z1 Standing just inside the entrance to the women's prayer area. 
Z1 standing inside women's area with his silhouette peering through the door.
Love this iron door with all the fretwork. Looks beautiful when the light is shining through. 

Stucco latice on the exterior of the Mosque windows.

Same side of building, but with entire tower.

What do you think? Can you find appreciation in this beauty? Leave a comment below and let me know. Thanks for stopping by.
