Jamia Mosque

I picked up Prince PTT and N's Daughter, H, from their drama rehearsal and on the walk home the Jamia Mosque up the escalator was having an open day. After living here for five years, I've never seen it open to the public, so we took a quick look. The kids' open minded inclusive schooling paid off as they marched straight to the front and started to prostrate 'Muslim' style, much to the amusement of the Mosque officials!

I loved the stained glass in the dome.

It's gorgeous to see something so old and stately in Hong Kong. Jamia Mosque was built in 1849. Normally, they don't respect old buildings here and pull gorgeous renovation projects down to make way for yet another crappy high rise that will start to crack in five years time.

Also loved the other character filled on the site...
