“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”
This is the Red Mosque in the palace gardens of Schwetzingen in Germany. The mosque was built in 18th century and is today the last surviving of similar constructions that were en vogue in Europe then. It was never meant as a place of prayer but rather to illustrate the common search for principles of reason in the spirit of enlightenment. Hence, the words written on the walls may or may not be correct in Arabic, their origin lies rather in Western culture or in how the West perceived Oriental culture.
Although it is a wrong image of a foreign culture, it was done with good intentions and the means and knowledge available at the time.
Incidentally, although it has nothing to do with Islam as religion, it is one of the most popular spots for wedding photographs by Turkish and Arab couples in the region.
