Our World Jeddah: Welcome to the Mosque

As my friends and I were walking the narrow streets of Al Balad, a door to a mosque opened and a man invited us to have look inside.  Mosques usually have a patterned colored carpet with markings for praying individuals to form neat lines to accommodate all worshipers for the five daily prayers. There is also an indicator inside the mosque which points toward Mecca, the direction Muslims must face when prayers are made.

I like that rich red of the carpet.
