Cordoba – The Mesquita Mosque – Moorish design. Photos

I do love Muslim architecture and design. The Moorish mosque in Cordoba is ver beautiful.

The history is immense too. When Isabella kicked the Muslims out they built a cathedral in the middle of it! So weird.

The stupidity of religion, conflict and division; the beauty of design, decoration and art.

What a strange world we live in.

Sri Lanka – Colombo – Buddhist Sambodhi Chaithya Temple

The Buddhist temple was quite near the docks. It was a big Stupa on stilts. A very interesting structure unlike anything I’d ever seen.

When the sun was setting it stood out on the skyline. Lots of women in white robes were heading off to worship.
