Mosques and minarets (two!)

.

M is for mosques!  This one has TWO minarets.


On Saturday our Arabic teacher took us to the nearby Negev Bedouin town of Lakiya.
We drove by two of the town's many mosques.
Sorry about my out-of-the-car-window shots, but there was no time to stop.
We had many welcomes and lectures and visits waiting for our class.
I learned so much in half a day!
It is so inspiring what some of the women have done, together, to advance their status within the traditional, male-dominated society.
More about that in coming posts.

(Meanwhile, happy ABC Wednesday.)

  10. I wonder if they have a physical presence up there in the minaret or if they use loudspeakers.

  11. Gwil, I would imagine they use computerized broadcasts of the call to prayer from the minarets. That would be a LONG way for a muezzin to climb 5 times a day.
    But I will try to find out for sure and let you know.

    Thanks for sharing.
