Learn More About The Mosque Drawing

A mosque is a house of prayer in the Islamic religion. It is similar to the churches, temples, or synagogues of other faiths. You can learn about Islamic culture as you discover how to draw a mosque.

Five times each day, a muezzin (meaning "crier") announces from the tower or minaret that it is time for prayer.

Inside the mosque, there are rugs or mats on the ground on which people may kneel to pray. There is also an elevated area called a minbar from which a person may preach.

Mosques are located all over the world. Typically, each community that is home to Muslim worshippers has its own mosque.

You can see similar architecture in other structures as well. Though not technically a mosque, a shrine called the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem has a large golden dome.

The famous Taj Mahal has a similar architecture with domes and minarets. It is not a mosque either, but a mausoleum - a funeral structure. Interestingly, the Taj Mahal does have a mosque attached to it.
