Al Ain mosques # 8

A medium-sized mosque located at 4th Street, Giffin Community of Al Jimi District, Al Ain City. These shots were taken a month ago with clear blue sky and the temperature was about 20 degree Celsius. It has one big dome and one minaret. I was so lucky to photographed this mosque from inside, of course I did wash my feet and hands before entering this holy place for our Muslim brothers and sisters.

  2. It is very interesting to learn different cultures thru your lens. I have never been inside a mosque, but I know that there are no pews.

    Interesting architecture and stained glass.

    Happy Easter!

  4. Wonderful photos of that grand mosque! Today as Christians celebrate Easter and Jews celebrate Passover, we are reminded to respect other religions!
    Peace and love to you and yours
