Jeddah - HIM2

This is one of my favourite mosques outside Istanbul ... it's a small mosque located on the Jeddah corniche commissioned in the mid-80s to an Aga Khan award winning architect...the mosque is now named after the ex-mayor of Jeddah who commissioned it; Mohammad Saeed Farsi.

I love its sensitive scale, form, materials, detailing, colour as well as location all of which combine to create imo probably the nicest mosque in Saudi Arabia and an exceptional piece of indigenous architecture.
