The Old Khamis Mosque
Kingdom of Bahrain
Built in the 8th century, the Al Khamis Mosque is the oldest mosque in Bahrain and is believed to have been constructed by the Ummayed Caliph Omar Bin Abdul Aziz.

The recently restored twin minarets were added later, the first in the 11th century and the second sometime during the 16th century. The Mosque serves as a fine example of early Islamic architecture.
