"drinking a mint tea or arabian coffee" Grande Mosquée de Paris Tip by sachara
Grande Mosquée de Paris, Paris: 12 reviews and 31 photos
Not far from the Jardin des Plantes and the Museum of Natural History is the Mosqée de Paris. The Mosque of Paris is created in 1926 after World War I, as a sign of recognition to the fallen Muslim tirailleurs who lost their lives at Verdun and in the take-back of Douaumont fort.
The mosque is built in the Moorish style and has a 26M high minaret. The complex includes a hamman, a North African tearoom and restaurant. When I visited the first time in the early nineties the lovely inner garden with figues trees and fountains to drink a mint tea, I was almost the only visitor in a serene atmosphere. The last time in 2005 I visited the innergarden in the late afternoon. It was more lifely with lots of visitors. There is also a shop with Middle Eastern articles.
