Shah Faisal Mosque - Islamabad, Pakistan

Shah Faisal Mosque located in Islamabad, is the largest mosque of Pakistan. This mosque has been named Faisal Masjid in the memory of late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia who had graciously consented to defray the cost of this project during his visit to Islamabad, as a gift to the people of the city.

Designed by the Turkish Architect Mr. Vedat Dalokay the mosque is spread over an area of 1,89,705 square meters and is flanked by four minarets soaring gracefully to a height of 88 meters above the main prayer hall dome which is at a height of 40 meters.

The main prayer hall can accommodate 10,000 persons while the covered porticos and verandahs can take another 24,000 worshippers. The main courtyard has a space for another 40,000 worshippers.

Probably, Tatars have been living in Lithuania for more than a 600 years, their architecture was influenced by local art traditions that's why some mosques look like the churches, like this one:

Although NYC does have mosques, most of them do not take the normal design. The Islamic Cultural Ctr at 201 E 96th and 1711 3rd Ave is one of the few. It was built in 1996, and is Manhattan's only authentic mosque. I could show others, but there are mostly just places that occupy lowrises, so there is nothing special there. BTW, Muslims can acces it by taking either the No 4, 5, or 6 train of the subway to 96th St in which is it right by it. For more information, I insist you go here.
