Although Paris has never been on my wanderlust radar, I’m blessed to have visited it four times. This time round, I managed to visit some other interesting parts of Paris, including the part of the 5th Arrondissement where the Grande Mosquee du Paris is located.
This post is not about the complex issues facing an ever evolving migrant and multi-religious society or historical legacies. Rather, it’s just to showcase another side of Paris that is more popularly associated with the touristic Eiffel Tower or Louis Vuitton on Champs-Élysées. It is a pity that I didn’t get to visit the mosque proper as it was past touring hours. Still, the Hammam (bath) experience was quite unique.
Obviously, no photos of the bath itself – though you could read about it here.
