[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The 96 columns in the main prayer hall are clad with marble and inlaid with mother of pearl, one of the few places where you will see this craftsmanship.
The pools along the arcades reflect the mosque's spectacular columns, which becomes even more glorious at night. The unique lighting system was designed by lightning architects Speirs + Major to reflect the phases of the moon. Beautiful bluish gray clouds are projected in lights onto the external walls and get brighter and darker according to the phase of the moon.
Thanks for sharing.
Colonnes spectaculaires.
Les 96 colonnes de la salle de prière principale sont recouverts de marbre et incrusté de nacre, l'un des rares endroits où vous verrez ce savoir.
Les piscines le long des arcades reflètent colonnes spectaculaires de la mosquée, qui devient encore plus glorieuse nuit. Le système d'éclairage unique a été conçu par les architectes de foudre Speirs + Major pour refléter les phases de la lune. Beaux nuages gris bleutés sont projetés dans les lumières sur les murs extérieurs et deviennent plus claires et plus foncées selon la phase de la lune.
Merci pour le partage.
