A hidden gem of Dubai, The Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque And Centre impresses with its whitewashed walls decorated with gold and blue ornaments, and four 60 m (197 ft) minarets topped with gold crescent moons. Clearly influenced by Istanbul's Blue Mosque, this religious structure features a tiled forecourt surrounded by a vaulted arcade almost as large as the building itself. The interior of the mosque, the work of nearly 60 Moroccan artisans, is equally imposing. Notice how the blue light streams through elegant stained glass windows, and how the verses from the Qur'an cover the mihrab and pillars.
