The Blue Mosque

  Henri Dunantstraat 14 ,   Nieuw-West          (+31) 202 23 53 30     more than a year ago
If you haven't got the right address of this mosque, you might be walking around looking for it for quite some time. There are no minarets or other typical visuals characteristic of many Muslim places of worship. The mosque is a mix of traditional and modern architecture and consists of two storeys. The total surface area of this house of prayer, which is built of blue bricks, covers 790m2. Another characteristic element of so many mosques abroad, a loudspeaker to call the faithful to prayer, is conspicuously missing. The creation of this mosque was the fervent wish of many of the Islamic inhabitants of the neighbourhood. In addition to a room for prayer there are five class rooms for Islamic instruction, a room for lectures and two meeting rooms.
