The beauty of Mosques...

In Saudi Arabia, if a person wishes to build something, he must also build a mosque for the people to worship freely. So, every structure, including malls, gas stations, apartment complexes, family compounds and even the Corniche (beach boardwalk) has a mosque. Some are large, some are small, some are hidden in corners or different levels. The one in our compound is right next to our apartment. And many, many are architecturally stunning. Here are a few.

This mosque is actually in Bahrain on the main drag.

This is the mosque on the Corniche.
