Tanzeem Jumma Masjid (Ongoing)
Rooted down to history, a mosque is more than a place of worship. The Mosque also offers services to the community as a Centre for information & education, meditation, religious instruction and political discussion. With a similar ideology, the proposal for the Jumma masjid in Bhatkal was envisioned and planned.
The Tanzeem Jumma Masjid, located in the heart of the city of Bhatkal, is an architectural marvel to the locality. Taking influences from Turkish- Ottoman style Islamic architecture with multiple domes, arches and tall minarets, transitional geometric forms in finishes, the mosque is an ode to the rich tradition of the city. The main prayer hall with its triple height atrium, outdoor prayer area and mezzanine floor encapsulates the wonder of the divine and congregation through sheer number. The mosque is strategically designed for maximum utility and circulation within the neighbourhood, encouraging the idea of community.
