A mosque with palm trees on 13th street, Dubai

We discovered this mosque on 13th street by coincidence. It is a very nice building because of the architectural details: arches, symbols, minaret, entrance, and domes. The element that attracted us the most was the combination with the palm tree, the flowers and the green plants. The mosque looked very clean. We tried to go inside but the mosque was closed. A window stood open but inside of the building was empty. We assume the mosque is brand new.

We ontdekten deze moskee op de 13de straat bij toeval. Het is een zeer mooi gebouw vanwege zijn architecturale details: bogen, symbolen, minaret, inkom, en koepels. Het element dat ons het meeste aantrok was de combinatie met de palmbomen, de bloemen, en de groene planten. De moskee zag er zeer goed goed. We probeerden binnen te gaan maar de moskee was gesloten. Er stond wel een venster open maar de binnenkant stond bijna leeg. We gaan er van uit dat dit een recent gebouwde moskee is..
