Friday Prayers in Manama

DSC_5462 DSC_5486 DSC_5495 DSC_5499 DSC_5508Weekend Friday prayers in the Old Manama Suq in Bahrain.
Thousands of people get together on the streets of the old quarter a little before noon, come hail or shine.
The gatherings are rather pleasant occasions during the cool winter months, though  worshipers have to endure sizzling temperatures in the summer.

  1. Hi Mandeep Singh, great images. I wonder if it is possible to use one of your images, of course with the proper citation, in an academic lecture. I didn’t found your e-mail in your blog, I will be glad to explain you with further detail if required. Please let me know if possible. Thanks.

  2. Te lecture is on April 7 and 8 on nocturnal landscapes in the Arabian Peninsula. It’s for educational purposes only, will be in front of a general audience, and it will be recorded and maybe broadcasted on youtube. The image I will like to include in the presentation are number 3 and for counting from the beginning of the post.
