Central Mosque and Islamic Centre

Glasgow's Central Mosque and Islamic Centre is located on the south bank of the River Clyde within the Gorbals. The focal point for the estimated 30,000 Muslims in Glasgow and its surrounding area, it was completed in 1984 at a cost of £3 million and covers an area of 1.2 ha (4 acres) making it the largest Mosque in Europe. Like all Muslim places of worship it faces the Ka'aba in Mecca. Architecturally it is a mixture of modern designs and traditional Islamic features.
