Geocache Description:


Find, photograph, and log a mosque anywhere in the world.

***FYI: As you may know, this cache along with all other locationless caches will be archived on January 1, 2006***

For the appreciation of Islamic art, and in the spirit of cross cultural education, the mission of this virtual cache is to locate and photograph a mosque anywhere in the world. You must also supply at least one piece of information on the mosque's history.

Be sure to include a photograph with your GPS in it (no old photos), and the history item. Logs without a GPS picture won't be accepted.

Only one mosque per cacher, and only one log per mosque. Please use mosques that are/were functioning places of worship.

Try to meet someone there, you may be pleasantly surprised. Please be respectful - some mosques do allow non-Muslims inside, some do not - just ask!


Okay! Now for the final updates! Sorry for the delay, but I didn't realize that locationless caches would also be locked to owners for updates. Thanks much to "erik88l-r" for posting my changes.

So, the final count is: 428 logged finds (7 other unique mosques were entered as "posted notes"); and nearly 1000 pictures! Below is the breakdown of where they are. Also, be sure to check out the maps and collages of some of my favorites linked below.

Thanks again to all those who participated!
