This mosque in Paramaribo is no regular mosque.  What’s so unique about the mosque is how it sits right next to a Jewish synagogue.  Around the world there are synagogues and mosques within a block of each other and maybe even on the same block.  But there is no other place in the world where you can find a mosque and synagogue sitting right beside each other.  That is one of the things that makes Paramaribo so unique in the world.  It has such a vast array cultures that blend together to make such a welcoming city.  There isn’t any strife between any two cultures at least not while I was there.  It was truly one of the unique places I have been in South America!

  1. I actually couldn’t enter the mosque because it was closed for the day.. the word mosque actually derived from the spanish word Mosca meaning fly if I am not mistaken 🙂 Thanks for comment
