Minaret matters

DSC_7731 DSC_7701During my ‘evening walk’ in the old Manama Suq on Friday, I took pictures of these two mosque minarets that had escaped ny attention all these years. What drew me to take a picture was the colourful mosaic work on one of them and the very spacious courtyard within its premises. As I walked around, I saw another very elegant minaret, also within the confines of one of Bahrain’s oldest neighbourhoods.Bahrain has hundreds of mosques within striking minarets that stand out in their splendour. I had earlier blogged about a mosque under renovation in Budaiya with its colourful domes and paintings. This is another blog as part of that series.
More will follow!
