Great mosque of Sidi Salem
Nefta, Tunisia

Nefta, Tunisia

The mosque of Sidi Salem is usually labelled great mosque, but has no special functions from the other mosques. It is simply larger.
Its appearance is simple, dramatic and beautiful. Simplicity has been performed to its completeness here, and even the inner parts are as unadorned as the exterior. Note, however, the unusual holes in the dome on its eastern side.
