After parking the car at a clearer area a distance away I walked to the main mosque of Kota Bahru, the Muhammadi mosque.
It was soon raining as I relaxed at the roofed pathway just outside the mosque's compound.
From here I could see some rushing to get inside the mosque. Wait a minute. Is this fella rushing to the men's instead? :]
By then the mosque was almost full.
With the sermon still in full blow coming out from the speakers I knew I still have some time to walk around. Here's view from the main entrance to the compound.
I took time to enjoy the scene outside with the hawkers before rushing back to mosque immediately upon hearing the final call to prayer.
Here's a picture after the Friday prayers.
Some of the crowd getting out.
Others prefer to take their time enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of the mosque.
As for me it's time to snap more pictures without the crowd blocking...
The praying hall. This is actually the second praying hall. I understand it is for women but as Friday prayers are compulsory for men but not for women it is used for men on Fridays.
The men's hall which is the main praying hall lies inside the main building besides.
Going into the main hall...
