Sunday is for Church

[click image to enlarge]


The Islamic Center of New England has two sites: one Mosque is located on South Street in Quincy and the other in Sharon. I'm not sure if there is one special day for worship. Weekend School is held here on Saturday and Sunday.

Pretty little mosque. Perhaps the smallest I've ever seen. Doesn't seem to have a dome.

Very nice shots!

Very nice. There are new Mosques being built regularly where I am, and they all seem to have this basic type of architecture. The Mosques are also always built at an angle, never square with the lot, or the street. I have no idea why.

Great detail on the door.

I loved your snowy window the other day too!

Thank you all for stopping by and commenting.

Beantown today- I can't help but wonder if the Mosque is built at an angle on the property in order for the prayer rooms inside to face Mecca or my other thought is that perhaps the front door has to face north. Does anyone know the answer?

Slim, I have a customer that worships at a local Mosque; I'll ask him when I see him tomorrow.

Slim, the Mosques are built so the worshipers inside the Mosque are facing Mecca when they pray.
