Masjid Aa'choo - Mutrah

Today Norbert and I had a walk in Mutrah in order to take some more mosque photos.

Before the discovery of oil in Oman, Muttrah was the center of commerce in Oman/Muscat. This means that Mutrah is an older part and in the older parts of the cities you will find many small mosques.
Nowadays they seem to build big mosques a little further apart.

Anyway, GaryW's comment "almost on every corner", is almost true - in this case they are all along the bigger streets...
Just across the street from the mosque with the green top I posted 2 days ago ( http://365project.org/ingrid01/oman/2021-04-15 ) is this one.

It has a name in English, but that's it.

The arches in front are a kind of walkway. It is really nice to walk through them in the shade... See a picture in my extras album...
Plenty of mosques to keep you going in Muttrah!
