Grande Mosquée de Paris

The Great Mosque of Paris located in the 5th arrondissement is the largest mosque in France and the second largest in Europe. It was founded after World War I as a sign of France's gratefulness to its Muslim tirailleurs from its colonies who had fought against Germany. The Mosque inaugurated in 1926 was built following the mudéjar style of Al-Andalus.

BTW, it's a mosque without loudspeakers. No adzan calls and people still go there for praying. May this lesson be learnt in other places as well.

الحمد لله‎‎

Paris, December 2009.
