Jalil Khayat Mosque – Erbil / Iraq

Jalil Khayat Mosque

Jalil Khayat Mosque

In my last visit to Iraq in 2011, I had the chance to go inside the yard of the Jalil Khayat Mosque in Erbil city in Kurdistan (northern Iraq) and took above shot. The place was quite as I did not go during prayer time. Jalil  Khayat Mosque is the biggest in Erbil and maybe in Iraq, it is built on Turkish style. Unfortunately I could not take a photo for the Mosque from outside to show its massive size and the domes and all minarets. I liked the architecture, colors and the Quranic versus in Arabic on the wall. Below are other pictures I took there. Click on the image to view the full size.
