Foundation stone laid on world’s third largest mosque

The foundation stone of the world’s third largest mosque was laid at an official ceremony in Algiers, Algeria.

The 400,000m2 Mosquée d’Algérie offers space for up to 120,000 visitors daily, as well as a prayer hall for up to 37,000 people and a 265m-high minaret.

It will also contain a cultural centre, Imam school, library, apartments, fire station, museum and research centre.

Plans have been drawn up by a German consortium consisting of KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten and engineering firm Krebs und Kiefer International.

The world’s largest mosque is the Masjid al-Haram in Makkah, followed by the Al-Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina.

    Design is contemporary… The minaret could be designed with a dome on top… It could have more Islamic architecture resemblance.
