nice high quality photo of Islamic(?) architecture, liked (35), greetings Pavel

Nadia Kushnir on September 4, 2012

Many thanks, Pavel! The Druze are considered to be a social group as well as a religious sect, but not a distinct ethnic group. Also complicating their identity is the custom of Taqiya—concealing or disguising their beliefs when necessary—that they adopted from Shia Islam and the esoteric nature of the faith, in which many teachings are kept secretive. Druze in different states can have radically different lifestyles. Some claim to be Muslim, some do not. The Druze faith is said to abide by Islamic principles, but they tend to be separatist in their treatment of Druze-hood, and their religion differs from mainstream Islam on a number of fundamental points.

Best regards. Nadia.

Hello Nadia,

Looks very modern recently built structure. Yet it has still got that traditional local feel to it. Nice perspective and very clear sharpness..
