Tehran (IQNA)- Modon Properties has started building five permanent mosques in the northern part of Riyadh City, Abu Dhabi, with a total capacity of 2,500 worshippers.
Mosque sites have been chosen in collaboration with the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowments, alongside the Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport.
Construction is expected to be complete by the second quarter of 2020, in time to receive worshippers during Ramadan, with each mosque having a capacity between 400 and 500.
Two of the mosques will be 487 square metres in size, another two will be 609 square metres, and the fifth will cover 593 square metres.
Each mosque will include a women’s prayer room, a muezzin room, and an imam room, as well as two internal and external ablution areas.
CEO of Modon, Abdulla Al Sahi, said: “The construction of these mosques reflects Modon’s commitment to building integrated residential communities in Abu Dhabi. We are keen to ensure that future communities enjoy a wide variety of high-quality facilities.”
Riyadh City will accommodate over 200,000 people on its completion, making it the largest residential development community in Abu Dhabi.
