I see there are some heated topics 'round here...so lets get off on a lighter note and post some of our favorite mosques in the world. One per person. And please make sure to take a captivating shot, something worth showing to others, something that could count as art. Try to get a photo of the mosque in all of its beauty and clarity.


The Blue Mosque in Istanbul

About design, most West African mosques tend to be in a square shape, usually with less glass and more mud/cement concrete. Depending on the environment, mosque design varies to an extreme degree. Mosques in China tend to follow a mix of traditional east Asian design and the dome design.
