These 2 image, “Rooftop” and “Minaret and domes” each earned an honourable mention in the architecture category of the 2018 Monochrome Awards. The images show the intricate detail of the mosque roofline, and shows glimpses of just a few the mosque’s 82 domes, and part of a single minaret (one of 4 at this mosque).
