Sunset over the Jamia Mosque


Taken from the Asda carpark about a month ago.

The extention to the Jamia Mosque on Greenfield Street is still under construction.

Donation appeals for funds were made in 2007 and 2008 and the three video appeals from YouTube can be found on Hyde DP Extra.

Today's post is also an early contribution this week to Skywatch Friday.

It looks like the extension is much larger than the original mosque, which I suppose is a sign of a congregation that has grown substantially. It is an interesting design because it appears that it has four onion domes rather than minarets.

Happy New Year to you and to the congregation building the enlargement of the mosque.
