  1. I’ve always liked Islamic pattern design and will usually visit those sections in museums. That door is GORGEOUS!

    • Isn’t that door wonderful? We really had a wonderful visit there. Thanks for visiting here!

      See you in the streets,

  2. Beautiful photos, Paul. It is amazing how similar these designs and tiles are to those in Andalusian Spain. I have not been to the Mosque but it is “on the list.” I told you that the list just gets longer every time I go to Paris.

    • Thanks Genie,

      Yes, it really is a wonderful visit. The nice thing about the tea room section is that you can stay as long–or as briefly–as you like, and it really is a nice way to have a little break in a busy day.

      See you in the streets,

  3. I’ve passed this mosque several times but never ventured in. I guess I was unsure if visitors were allowed. I’d like to sip some tea in the tearoom. Another thing to add to my Next Time list. Lovely photos Paul.

    • Hi Virginia,

      I was exactly the same–a little unsure of how things worked there–until I decided to take my son to commemorate 9/11. We found a very welcoming and authenitc place and I heartily recommend it!

      See you in the streets,
