SkyWatch: Terra Cotta Mosque


I really liked the composition of this photo of the unusually colored terra cotta mosque which is partially obscured by the trees. In general, the majority of mosques in Saudi Arabia are white, so seeing mosques in other colors is more of a rarity. I also like the architectural design of this mosque as well. There are mosques every few blocks here in Jeddah. So no matter where you are in the city, the calls to prayer can be heard like a symphony coming from several different mosques at once.

    I like this photo a lot. The mosque looks rather modern, very different from most of them.

    When I visited Bangladesh with my husband, I experienced listening to the prayers and calls to prayers. It’s an amazing sound, new to my ears, but really nice to listen to.

    I like anything pinkish so this mosque is right up my alley.
