King Abdullah Mosque Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
It is hard to miss the imposing blue and white dome of this mosque, flanked by two minarets. The octagonal layout resembles Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock. This example of contemporary Islamic art draws on traditional motifs (mouqarnas, moucharabiehs, calligraphed glass lamps) treated in a style that is both sober and elegant. The qibla is indicated by a purely symbolic wall that has no structural purpose. A small Islamic museum displays pottery, carved stelae and items belonging to King Abdullah.
