We read the book Mosque by David Macaulay before visiting The Blue Mosque. It is a story of mosque construction based on the construction of The Blue Mosque. Many terms such as Mihrab, minaret, minbar are clearly explained within the text. The book describes the layout of the mosque, how the domes were constructed and supported and the timeframe required to construct the mosque. It was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in construction, engineering or learning more about the Muslim Faith.
