      Original pinner says this is in the Imam Mosque in Isfahan, Iran. We were just talking about Islamic design in class the other day. Absolutely stunning detail.

      Islamic architecture. Some of the most beautiful mosaic work in the world is in this part of the world.

      The Imam Mosque in Isfahan, Iran featuring an architectural detail known as Muqarnas. Muqarnas is one of the most characteristic features of Islamic architecture and is used throughout most of the Muslim world (in North Africa a related system known as muqarbaras is also used). Muqarnas is usually associated with domes, doorways and niches, although it is often applied to other architectural features and is sometimes used as an ornamental band on a flat surface

    Tokyo Mosque by Wherever I Roam on Flickr. 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.
