Domes

Domes There are 82 domes of various sizes and the largest is located in the centre of the main prayer hall.  The design elements include pure white marble cladding; onion shaped ‘crowns’ and crescent shaped finials decorated with gold-glass mosaic.  The elongated windows allow the natural light to enter the prayer halls.

The inside of the domes feature traditional Moroccan artwork which has been made from reinforced plaster called (GRG).  Encircling the inside of the domes are verses from the Holy Quran which are also molded from GRG and painted in gold colour.

Other domes are found on the grand gated entrance and other entrances.   There are also fourteen green glass domes incorporated into the roof of the underground male and female ablution facilities.  They are visible above ground and are an important feature of the Mosque’s Islamic garden design.
