Kuwait's new mosque is more than a nod to the Taj Mahal - The National

Kuwait's new mosque is more than a nod to the Taj Mahal - The National: "KUWAIT CITY // India has always been an important source of the foreign labour that has built Kuwait's skyscrapers, taught in its schools and run its businesses.

With the opening of a mosque this year, the subcontinent has become a source of architectural inspiration, too. The As-Sadeeqa Fatimatul Zahra Mosque, built in the style of the Taj Mahal, is already gaining a reputation as one of Kuwait's most distinctive buildings.

'It's giving a sight for the [passengers of] planes when they come in,' said Eisa Mohammed, the supervisor of the Shiite mosque in the Abdullah al Mubarak residential area, a suburb on the approach to Kuwait International Airport."
