There is a mosque on every street corner here, or at least every other one. You think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. Well, not much. There’s a mosque almost everywhere. They’re big, small, and in between. They’re modern, old-fashioned, and nondescript. They’re fancy or little more than a few rooms in a square building. Some are marvelously fascinating. Jenia and I have been taking some photos. Here are a few I’d like to share. Most are taken nearby in Al Ain. So this isn’t a list per se, but more of a photographic listing of some of the more interesting mosques we’ve come across.
We intend to keep taking photos of neat sights in the region, and we’ll put up more pictures when we’ve gathered them. Sadly, I’ve been too busy working and it’s been so oppressively hot that we’ve not taken many photos so far. That should change in the coming month or so.
A Salaam Alekoum!
