This well-illustrated book is the most noteworthy contribution to recording the rich heritage of mosques in Sri Lanka. The history of mosques in our country is a most fascinating one interwoven with stories of miracles, perseverance and very important instances of co-existence with the other communities that have made this beautiful island their home.

This work covers thirty-one iconic mosques of Sri Lanka from the very old Bakinigahawela Mosque in the Uva Province with its thick walls and traditional local architecture to the ultra-modern Jamiah Naleemiah Mosque which has been compared to a flying saucer. It shows how mosque architecture has evolved over the centuries and the varied influences that contributed to it, all of it illustrated with a hundred photographs that bring out the ambience of mosques in all its splendour and variety.
