Photo of the Day – King Abdullah Mosque Jordan

Constructed between 1982 and 1989 by the late King Hussein as a memorial to his grandfather, the blue mosaic-tiled dome of the King Abdullah Mosque Jordan is one of Amman’s most striking architectural features. The expansive, pillar-free octagonal prayer hall can accommodate 7,000 worshippers inside with space for another 3,000 in the courtyard. Inside the dome, the blue color of the ceiling represents the sky while gold lines down the base depict rays of light illuminating the 99 names of Allah. Verses from the Quran are inscribed on both the dome and on the massive three-ring chandelier. This stunning house of worship is the only mosque in Amman that openly welcomes non-Muslim visitors making it a must-see for tourists of all faiths.
