I like it. What style of mosque is it, Pakistani? It's only a shame that you can't see the church on the steeple since the cross is at the wrong angle. Otherwise, great shot, great angle.

Default To Becky: original name of this mosque...

Hi Becky!

Well, the World is not perfect. Probably the architect didn't think there would be a mosque standing just few metres far away or that someone would want to take photos of it :-)

It's actually a very good question. Well, surprisingly, the original name of this mosque was Saddam Hussein Mosque because the ex-Iraqi donated money for it in 1988, so I would say it's Iraqi style.

There is more information on this website: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/2916223.stm

Thanks for your comments, Becky.

Ondrej
