CDR-1235: SR Set: Islamic Architecture

The vendors of Scholars Resource offer images of Islamic architecture that range across centuries as well as continents. Here are mosques, medrasahs, ribats, tombs and palaces. Mosques are especially well represented: from classic examples of the Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul and the Great Mosque at Cordoba to the Great Mosque at Kairouan in Tunisia and the enormous 20th c. Mosque of Hussan II in Casablanca. Updated 9/2010
