The mosque was built in 1908. Red and white brick wall stripes, like layers of cake, are one of the most striking buildings in Colombo. It is said that many Sri Lankan sailors in the early 20th century used it to determine whether they had arrived at Colombo's port. But girls can't get in here, so we have to stand outside and look at it.
There are many people coming and going in small streets with very large traffic, but this youth is quite eye-catching, and its architecture is very prominent. Men can enter freely, but they should pay attention to some Islamic rules. Finally, they should wash their hands first, then their feet, then go in, and go around cautiously. Let's just shoot at the door.
When we looked at the map to find the mosque, we found that all the way there was a busy and noisy city. Still doubting whether it was the wrong way, but suddenly came to a corner, saw, red and white, like a fairy tale in the same building, we suddenly feel that, has arrived, is the mosque, quite beautiful, quite amazing.
The red and white buildings are very interesting. The Red Mosque is situated in the busy streets of Colombo. It is easy to see from afar, but the paths are tortuous and easy to turn off. There are no women in the temple, and it's because we are tourists that we are invited in friendly. Take off your shoes, don't be noisy and exotic. Very interesting.
Red mosque is a long-standing mosque near the Beta market in Colombo. It is a red and white brick building, also known as Jami-Ul-Alfar mosque. It was completed in 1908 and is one of the landmarks of Colombo. It is said that many sailors who came to Sri Lanka in the early 20th century used it to identify the port of Colombo. It is noteworthy that the mosque is only open to men, and female visitors can only appreciate the beauty of the Islamic building from outside.
In the bustling inner street, it is not the grand building I imagined, but when I saw the mosque, I could not help exclaiming the beauty of the mosque, which is really beautiful, red and white buildings, like castle buildings in fairy tales, very beautiful. The window flowers inside are more beautiful
Red-and-white mosques are rare indeed. Please do not visit them during prayer time or soon. The main entrance is not allowed to enter the restaurant, but the side entrance in the alley is needed. Go along the one-way road and turn right at the first intersection. No parking is allowed at the entrance. Car travelers should pay attention to it.
