King Hussein Mosque and Gardens

In addition to a great presentation on "photo basics" with Rob, we had a wonderful tour of the King Hussein Mosque and the gardens surrounding the mosque. It was opened and dedicated in 2006. It's a gorgeous structure, situated atop a hill on the edge of Amman. The mosque is not generally open to tourists seeking to take so many photographs - so we had to use our "wasta" (connections) to get access to the mosque early (before it opens) and to get permission to take photos inside. (it's a government structure, so typically, there are no photos allowed of government buildings).
