GHAT
What deserves the colour white

Ghat, Libya

The main mosque of Ghat is everything but grand, but does represent an in-between architecture, partly of North African patterns, and partly with soft mosque-style to be found in the southern fringes of Sahara.
There are few more buildings still in white, white being an indication of a building in use and of importance.
