Exhibition celebrating mosques from around the world opens in Dubai

A new photo exhibition celebrating some of the world’s most beautiful mosques has opened at Jumeirah Mosque in Dubai.
 
Mosques of the World, which features 32 photographs by people from 15 countries, focuses on the architecture and spiritual beauty of these buildings. It has opened to coincide with the Hajj season and will run until the end of October.
 
Secretary General of the HIPA, His Excellency Ali bin Thalith, said: “Photography is a powerful medium that allows photographers to speak and communicate with the rest of the world without words. Using that as inspiration, we set out the unique challenge of documenting the beauty of Islamic architecture and mosques to our Instagram community through the HIPA Instagram Photo Contest.
 
“The results were inspiring and highlighted the wide array of Islamic architecture found around the world while also underlining the photogenic serenity and appeal of these places of worship.”
