The largest Islamic complex in the Western World, the $110M facility includes a magnificent Ottoman-style mosque, and a range of academic and cultural facilities, together with a Turkish bath and a swimming pool.

The guest of honour was the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who commended the centre as a beacon of interfaith tolerance and community cohesion which will do much to counteract common misapprehensions about Islam in America. For more images and information visit diyanetamerica.org.
