DOORS OPEN WEEKEND 2016

 

Doors Open Weekend give you free access to hundreds of fascinating buildings across Scotland. Every weekend in September you can explore places that are normally closed to the public. Some open up once a year, some just once in a lifetime. This is your chance to discover the architecture, design, buildings, places and spaces right on your doorstep or explore a new part of the country. http://www.doorsopendays.org.uk/opendays/

Dundee Central Mosque is situated near the town centre of Dundee city; it is the first purpose built Mosque in North-East Scotland, built using traditional Scottish materials and energy efficient construction techniques. The Mosque is rich in Islamic symbolism and includes two prayer halls built facing Makkah and above the Minbar (pulpit) is a copper dome, both symbolic and for light.

Every year, the mosque is part of The Scottish Civic Trust Doors Open Days initiative. This year Doors Open Weekend is on Saturday 17th September and Sunday 18th September from 10.30am-4.00pm (both days).
