Our World - Saudi Arabia Prayer Time

One of the things I am fascinated by the most here in Saudi Arabia is seeing large groups of men praying together in formation at the various prayer times of the day.  Every area of cities and smaller towns have designated public areas where anyone can join in when it is prayer time.

We walked by this group of men and further back and a little distance from the men were women also praying.   Many places have carpets for anyone to use to pray on. Shoes are always taken off and placed to the side.

There are certain spaces set aside for Muslim prayers on campus that I can think of, but for the most part I don't see that here. The odd time I might come across someone in a library aisle who's taking a few minutes out for their prayers. As I understand it you don't have to be around anyone else doing the same, just that it's done.
