It is known that the first mosques of the Islamic religion were built in a flat architecture. At that time, Islam established a civilization primarily through religious expression. Later, Islam spread to wide geographies and formed the great Islamic civilization by kneading with different cultures.

There is no clear answer as to why mosque architecture is dome style. It’s not a fixed rule either. However, in the periods when Muslims advanced in science and art, they preferred a dome-shaped structure in mosque architecture, as in other principles of Islam, probably because of the principle of not being similar to different religions.

As a matter of fact, church architecture in Christianity is generally based on a structure consisting of very sharp lines. In Islam, on the other hand, a dome-like structure with softer but distinct transitions has emerged.

In fact, when considering the construction of a dome-like structure, it is much more difficult than the existing flat structure logic. It requires advanced math, trigonometry knowledge, and architectural acumen.

Perhaps with a challenge to centuries after it was built, architects chose the dome structure in mosques.
At the same time, the dome-like structure provides a more spacious and wider prayer environment in the mosque.

Again, wide calligraphy can be written on the inside of the dome, which fascinates the worshipers.
