Islam - Most Beautiful Mosques In The World Pictures

Updated on January 1, 2018

The Most Beautiful Mosques in the World

This is a compilation of the most beautiful mosques in the world.

The artistry is amazing and the architecture of some of the mosques are breathtaking!

The Arabic word for mosque is 'MASJID'.


The mosque is the centre of any Muslim community and is the place of worship. All Muslims worship Allah (God) in the mosques five times a day. Mosques are also the integral part of Islamic centres which includes education, talks, gatherings and community facilities.

All Muslims in the world face towards the Qibla (the Holy Kaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia) when praying and bowing in prostration.

I hope you enjoy some of the world's most beautiful mosques.
