The Biggest Mega-Mosque in Scandinavia
Construction crews in Copenhagen have raised Denmark's first minaret -- a 20 meter (65 foot) tower-like structure that will alter Copenhagen's low-rise skyline -- as the finishing touch on a colossal project to build the biggest mega-mosque in Scandinavia.
Construction of the minaret, which was finished on September 3, marks the final phase of work on Denmark's first-ever purpose-built mosque, situated at Rovsingsgade Street in Nørrebro, a heavily Islamized district in northwestern Copenhagen.
The so-called Grand Mosque, which will cater to Sunni Muslims, is massive by European standards. The complex covers 6,800 square meters (75,000 square feet) and will house a domed mosque, a restaurant, a cinema, classrooms, offices, a community center for the elderly, childcare facilities, a playground and more, in what is being billed as the largest "real" mosque in Scandinavia.
