Village Mosque


This small village is at the edge of an industrial area district of Bursa

On Friday at lunchtime the street is full with workers from the factories who go to the mosque.It seems a little bit lonely now...

I love the effect that minarets bring to the mosquee. It's beautiful!
Here, in France there is not a lot of mosquee whereas the muslim community is numerous (there is not a real one in Nancy for example). But, fortunately there is more and more project to build mosquee in big cities!

Yoshi - I agree the minarets are very elegant.

Tanya - thanks for your comment! Indeed Bursa is full of contrasts, because it has a lot of history but has also developed very quickly in the last years
