One of the many patterns o the side wall of the mosque is a weave pattern of perpendicular rectangles grouped by four with a tiny square in the middle. In the rectangles you can read Alahu akbar (God is the greatest).
  • The pattern is created by two overlapping sqares, forming the basic rectangle.
  • Perpendicular to the first rectangle a second, identical rectangle is placed.
  • Rotating these rectangles creates the unit repeat of the tiling.
