Salalah City, a matter of details…. (part 1)

In Salalah, as in Muscat, the crowning achievement of contemporary mosque architecture are the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosques. In 2009 the Friday mosque also open to non-muslims in Salalah was inaugurated.

Detail of beauty is the paneled wall decoration of the Mihrab in the main prayer hall. It took four months to fix 20.000 miniaturized pieces of different types of marble on panels by using water jet cutting and laser.
