About Jami Ul-alfar Mosque, Colombo

Then take a look at this mosque and the eye-catching white and red striped pattern on its towering, imposing body of Indo-Saracenic architecture. Surprising isn't it? It took one year to build this mosque, completed in 1909. Before the view was obscured, it is said that sailors used the mosque's distinctive look as the major landmark when coming into Columbo. Today, it is one of the most visited tourist sites in the city. The mosque has the largest Muslim congregation in the city.
