King Abdullah Mosque Reviews
لطالما تمنيت أن ارى مسجدا خاليا من الأعمدة من الداخل. وها أنا أدخل هذا المسجد الذي يشدني منذ زمن شكله الخارجي، فأكتشف مصادفة انه خال من الأعمدة! more »I always wanted to see a mosque free of columns from inside. And here I am entering this mosque which has been pulling me since the time of its outer shape, and discovered a coincidence that it is empty of columns!
Ammán, la entrada habitual a Jordania no parece ser para la mayoría de los visitantes una ciudad especialmente encantadora. La mezquita es uno de los pocos lugares de interés. Es una mezquita moderna ... more »Amman, the usual entrance to Jordan does not seem to be for most visitors a particularly charming city. The mosque is one of the few attractions. It's a modern mosque, although that really doesn't take away value from it. It was built 30 years ago and its imposing dome has made people talk about it as the Blue Mosque. From the outside the set is very striking; the dome, flanked by two large white minarets and surrounded by small blue-colored domes, makes it one of the most characteristic buildings in the city. Inside the large, fully diaphanous prayer room impresses. It is the only mosque in Amman that can be visited by non-Muslims. To enter you have to access through a door that leads you to tour a series of shops before passing to the mosque. No one can doubt that Arabs are good traders. There they provide women with a robe that they should wear by covering legs, arms and head before entering. Nor can men access with the torso or legs uncovered. A Catholic church is located right in front of the Mosque of Abdullah I. A sample of the coexistence between different religions in harmony.
The Mosque is a distinguished one. It is located in an important spot in Amnan, where many citizens walk, so they can stop and pray during the pray time. It is well designed built . As the sky blue color shown clearly on the top
The mosque is among the biggest and most modern in this part of the world. It's amazing that it's one of the few mosques that allows non-muslim visitors. It was also our first visit in such a temple which was fascinating. it's famous for it's big blue dome. It kind of reminds of Scheherazade and her 1001 nights. 🙂
