Built in 1897, this does not look like a mosque until closer inspection reveals the unmistakable minaret-shaped domes, the Arabic writing and the look of tranquility on the faces of those who depart from the premises. The mosque is a victim of the increasing smog that is synonymous with Georgetown these days. Careful observation is needed to see that the walls were originally painted in pink. The mosque is closely guarded by a self-appointed watchman who welcomes visitors with a stream of mutterings and curses, a lecherous smile and rude hand gestures.
