While driving home yesterday, I saw that the King Hussein’s mosque lighting systems where being tested. The lit mosque looked quite stunning so I got out my camera and attempted a few shots. I didn’t have a tripod so most of them came out shaky. This one came out OK. Judging by the cleaning activities around the mosque and the light tests yesterday night, it looks like the mosque will open soon.
For those of you not familiar with Amman, don’t confuse this new mosque with the Husseini mosque, Amman’s old main mosque in the heart of downtown Amman. I saw many internet sites calling the Husseini mosque the King Hussein mosque.
