Prophet's Mosque Medina
Painting - Watercolor
The second holiest shrine for Muslims is the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina, Saudi Arabia. It is found on the site of the original mosque built by the Prophet (pbuh) next to his house. It consisted of an elevated platform, an enclosed courtyard and a shaded area. It served also as a community center, a court and a school. This basic layout became prototypical for future mosques. The original mosque in Medina was first oriented towards Jerusalem, later modified toward Mecca. Today�s Al-Masjid is more than 100 times larger than the original and can accommodate more than half a million pilgrims.
