JERBA
Jama' Fadloud
Jama' Fadloud, Jerba, Tunisia

As this mosque, just few kilometres out of Midoun, is apparently out of use, it is also fully open for explorations inside.
What it tells its visitors, is that the elegant minimalism of Jerba mosques, is continued on the inside. There are no mosaics, no colours, only white walls and vaults. Even the niche in the wall indicating the direction of Mecca, is unadorned.
