Time to pray

Inside mosque
Washing before praying
Muslims are supposed to pray five times per day. Before praying they should wash their feet, hands and face. In the picture you can see one washing place next to the entrance of one mosque. I did not see men having any towels to dry themselves. Women were not washing themselves in the same spot so I do not know what are their washing rituals. In mosque women had their own little praying section and men were praying in the main area of the mosque. While tourists could visit the mosque there were few people praying  but during the official praying time tourists were not allowed to enter. When entering the mosque women were advised to cover themselves and wear a scarf. Everybody also had to take off their shoes.
