  cuma mosque

Cuma means Friday ...This mosque hosted for a long time the carpets museum, but is now back to its original use. The building you can see today dates from the early twentieth century, courtesy of an oil baron, but stands over the remains of preceding buildings. Its main attraction is the intricate stone ornamentation.
The Imam and his assistants are Turks who studied in both Iran and Iraq.
Services were on several occasions restricted by the authorities, due to 'radical' content.
I hope that its OK now
