Masjid A'Salam

This mosque is being build along the Express way. In November 2020 my son took a photo of it when I drove.

I was planning to stop by during the April 30 shots, but didn't manage. Today I had to drop something of at school and did a little loop to stop here.

The mosque is not open yet. There is a big and pretty car park behind, but no access yet... If you look well you can also see the scaffolding inside.

The mosque is a lot prettier than I initially thought. I didn't really like the small "caps" on the minarets and in general I thought they were a little boring, but at night what is white in daylight is lit in the evening (when it works - think they still have some trouble every now and then and on top of that we are having curfews). So this one will definitely be on my list for night photos!

Oh and of course there is no info on the internet... the only website I found was this one:
It looks grand to me!

The blue domes are beautiful and the top of the minaret has an Art Deco look to it.

It's turning into a really pretty mosque. I love the designs on the domes

It looks like it's straight out of a movie film strip...

Een neef van mij heeft enkele jaren gewerkt in S.A. Veel van deze mooie architectuur ook daar. In beperking schuild ook veel mogelijkheden.

@pyrrhula Gelukkig weinig tot geen beperkingen hier! Nouja, wel voor Corona, maar niet echt met betrekking tot het geloof.
Omani's hebben heel veel begrip voor andere culturen en ik kan gewoon in een driekwart broek met t-shirt naar buiten of de winkel. En als je ergens gaat zwemmen kan dat meestal ook gewoon in zwembroek of bikini tenzij het dichtbij een dorp is of er een bordje staat.
