The Mosques of Al Ain - #9

I'm doing something a little different with this post. These are three mosques that are in my old neighborhood. They are all a smaller than the others that I have posted so far and much less imposing, but I still think that they have interesting and attractive features.

The main building on this one is very simple, but the minaret is seems very elegant. I especially like the way that the windows running up the side.

The main building here is in some ways even simpler, but I like the details: the shape of the windows and doors and the roof decorations (I'm sure that these things have a name, but I'm no architecture expert). Again, the minaret is very well done too.

The minaret here is the best of the three
