24 Breathtaking Mosque Interiors You Want To See Before You Die

Breathtaking mosque interiors: In a Muslim’s world, mosques are the most elaborate and delicate architectural wonders which are built by man. A single post would not even start to cover how awesome these structures are in their entirety so we will narrow it down to mosque ceilings  – one thing that the faithful would be seeing each time their gazes go up to the heavens in worship.

This photo series will depict how geometric features and mathematics play a huge role in the Arab world’s Islamic architecture and in almost every place. The precise spiral shapes and repetitive geometric shapes are heavy reminders of delicate mandalas which are prominent in Buddhist art.

Iran, obviously, is a country known for its wide array of spectacular mosques but there are striking mosques which are located in other places as well.
