Halal Trip: Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s Ottoman influence is most clearly seen at the Westermoskee Ayasofya came (Western Mosque Aya Sofya). Everything about this monumental mosque in Amsterdam-West screams classical Ottoman. This stunning piece of architecture of historic imperial proportions — its 1,700 capacity is the largest in the Netherlands — aims to replicate the mosques built by masters like the great Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan.
