Al Saleh Mosque, Sanaa
(4.8/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
See Qurani verses carved into the stone walls of Al Saleh Mosque. The fusion of architectural styles, which they call Himyarite architecture, highlights the massiveness of the mosque while the combination of black, red, and white limestone, represents its significance. The main dome with wooden ornate roof is 39 m (about 127 ft) tall, and its minarets stand over 100 m (328 ft). Inside you'll see chandeliers with floral motifs as well as classrooms and libraries where students can study. The place is completely secure; you may even witness bomb-sniffing dogs.

  • Having seen the Taj Mahal in India, seeing this grandiose structure in Sana'a, capital of Yemen, you'll be amazed by its size and incredible beauty in the middle of the Mosque! As majestic and beautiful just not pass words, even breathtaking.

  • Architecturally good... You can see the original Yemeni historical decoration im the details.. In the other hand you can figure out how much money were spent for this mosque in a very poor country like Yemen..
