  • Huge Mosque of Baku, Azerbaijan.. Stunning architecture... However, there weren't many worshippers during the asar prayers.. We did not pray in the main hall as it was closed... The surrounding area around the mosque doubles up as prayer space whenever needed...
  • Most beautiful masjid in the Baku city
