Al Hosn Mosque

One of the prettiest and oldest mosques in town near “The White Fort” on Al Nasr Street in Khaldyia.

Old? It looks brand-new! I think it's gorgeous too. The details are amazing.

When I say 'old', I mean old for here. It's still about 20 years old though. It's my favourite, as I get to see it morning and evening on the way to and from work.

I was going to ask the same as Hilda - how old? I LOVE your mosque photos. The craftmanship and detail are such a fine tribute to Allah. I'm of the opinion that if you're going to build a house of worship, make it awe-inspiring! Too many Christian churches here are placed in empty mini-mall spaces. If I were God, I'd be offended! "I give you brilliant minds and glorious natural resources, and THIS is the best you can do?" LOL
