The Moorish Mosque

Quote:
"The Moorish Mosque was constructed on the order of his Highness Maharaja Jagajit Singh Bahadur. The building operations were in progress between October 1936 to March 1930. The total cost amounted to 4 lakh (400,000) rupees. The inauguration ceremony took place on the 14th March 1930 in the presence of His Highness the Maharaja who was accompanied by His Highness the Nawab Sadiq Mohd. Khan Bahadur, Ruler of Bahawalpur State. The congregation numbered over a lakh. The existence of this mosque will bear an enduring testimony to His Highness' broadminded tolerance and solicitude for the welfare of his subjects."

Maharaja Jagajit Singh was indeed an extraordinarily enlightened and progressive ruler of a small princely state near Jullundhar in the undivided Punjab. The reason he chose a Moroccan style mosque was that he used to visit that North African Arabo-Berber country regularly. The design of the Moorish Mosque was prepared by a Frenchman, M. Manteaux, who patterned it after the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakesh. It has a large compound paved with the purest marble. The artists of the Mayo School of Art, Lahore, decorated the inner dome.

Dakar, Senegal

Dakar Grand Mosque :

Quote:
The Dakar Grand Mosque (also Grande Mosquée de Dakar) is one of the most important religious buildings in the capital of Senegal. It is situated on Allée Pape Gueye Fall.

Designed by French and Moroccan architects, The Grand Mosque was opened in 1964 by Hassan II, King of Morocco and Senegalese President Léopold Sédar Senghor.

Richly decorated on the interior and exterior, it is stylistically similar to the Mosquée Mohammed V in Casablanca. Its minaret rises to 67 meters.

IMO, it looks more persian than moorish.

In Isfahan for example:



I might be wrong though.
