Mosque Graveyard

Off the beaten stone road, tucked behind the tourist traps, a little garden of art commemorating the wealthy patrons of a neighborhood mosque. Gravestone words written in Arabic script, approximately 200 hundred years old.

    Very cool!

    Just more proof that we are, indeed, one big family ~ and we end up the same in the end.

    Awesome photos. Wish I could be there to see it in person!

  3. The Arabic script adds so much. I don't need the interpretation...just the images are amazing!
