La Grande Mosquée de Paris - Entrée

Following on from the Architecture theme of last week, this week: La Grande Mosquée de Paris. Founded in 1926 as a token of gratitude to the Muslim infantry, some 100,000 of whom died fighting against the Germans in World War I, many portions of the Mosque are open to the public, including the traditional Turkish baths (hammam), gift shop (souk) and tea room (salon de thé).
