This is the entrance to a small neighborhood mosque. The wooden doors are pretty and I love the details on the columns. The cubby holes on either side of the doors are for shoes – no one wears shoes inside the mosque, which is carpeted wall-to-wall inside. Most mosques will usually have vendors right outside selling anything from fruits and vegetables to sandals and scarves. Mosques also provide water to perform ablution (washing up properly before prayers) and many provide drinking water as well.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
