Apart from being places of worship for Muslims, mosques are also structures where their Islamic identities are evident. In other words, an Islam in which mosques are removed will always be incomplete.

Domes within mosques express an Islamic line. It represents the Muslim civilization. Although very beautiful mosques without a dome have been built or are being built throughout history and in today’s architecture, the mosque has been identified with the dome.

Although the dome represents the mosque and Islam, there is no standard for dome architecture. In India, the mosque is both influenced by and transforming local architecture. In Anatolia, for example, it creates its own unique dome architecture, as in the dome example of Ottoman mosques. The typology is constantly changing, depending on where and when you look at it. In North Africa, on the other hand, we can encounter a different structure. There is no single mosque dome architecture that you can say “This is Islamic architecture”. But it is also a fact that when the dome in the mosque is mentioned, Ottoman architecture and Mimar Sinan and his students come there too…

With wide and high domes, mosques turn into more spacious areas. The Buddha is peaceful for worshipers and quite striking for first-time visitors.
