Islamlic Mosque design ::: "Mosque is a Holy place for Muslims. It refers to its Arabic name – Masjid. A Mosque is a place for worship for all the followers of Islam. Mosques all around the world are well known for the general importance to Muslims as well as for Islamic architecture and representation of Islamic culture."
The sight of a mosque in Tokyo is quite unusual. This mosque was newly built in 2000 with the contributions of the Turkish Republic and the Tokyo Mosque Foundation (which was around since 1938). This is the main hall with its ornate decorations inspired by Turkish Heritage. // photo by Rasekh Fatmi, 2012
