Al Ain Mosques #5

A small mosque at Salem Ibn Zayed Al awwal Street of Al Mutaredh District. It has one dome and one minaret, situated along the residential areas of Al Ghail Com.

I tried all the angle shots to take at least one with the dome visible but to no avail, I've seen that the dome  is too small compared to the other domes (of some mosques that I have seen and featured here). I patiently tried to take few more snaps...front, back, side, left, right....khalas! (enough!) Can you see the dome in this picture? I hope so or click the photo to enlarge :)

I saw the moon and I've decided to take another frontal shot.

Word of the day: khamsa is the arabic word for five.
Salaam to all! A blessed Sunday to all.

  4. Just a tiny, tiny hint of the dome in your second photo. ;)

    But even if it's small, it's still lovely with those beautifully lit green windows.
