The Red Mosque, Colombo, Sri Lanka #2

The Red Mosque, Colombo, Sri Lanka #2 by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

A view of the original two-storey Jami Ul-Alfar Masjid, designed by Saibo Lebbe in 1908, in the Indo-Saracenic style, with the new wing, built in 2007, towering above it. For a greater part of the 20th century, before more modern high-rise buildings obscured it, the striking colours of the mosque on 2nd Cross Street, in the old Colombo area of Pettah, were an identifying beacon for ships approaching the Colombo Harbour. April 2016.
