The Mosque Series # 06 Blue Mosque in Manama

Today's photo is the beautiful blue mosque in Manama. This is one of the many Shia mosques in Bahrain. As some of you may be aware that Bahrain has some of the largest proportion of Shia Muslims in the World. While mosques specifically Sunni's are known for their architecture, Shia mosques in particular are very colorful and full of calligraphy on the outside.

Do you hear the "shia azan" from these mosques?
