Gjakova, in western Kosovo
The main prayer hall of the Hadum Mosque (Xhamia e Hadumit), in classic Islamic-Kosovar style, featuring paintings and arabesques. The Mihrab, in the centre of the south-eastern wall, indicates the direction one should pray, towards Mecca. It forms a niche which ends in the upper part in form of the semi-cone. On its right is the Mimber, which serves for preaching on Fridays; the door, stairs and baldachin are entirely made of wood. The murals show stylised landscapes (in some cases with motifs of folk architecture, of kullas of Dukagin plain) with cypress trees, still nature, stars, motifs of architectural religious buildings – mosques, floral ornaments, geometrical figures and quotations from the Qur'an.
