Mawlid al Rasool

Monday, April 25, 2005

Here are some photos I took this afternoon in the Manama suq, which has been all decorated for the celebrations tonight of the Prophet's birthday and that of Imam Ja'far al Sadiq. I was there later in the evening also for the actual celebrations, but my camera died on me so I don't have pictures of the beautiful lights. (And I ate one too many platefuls of biryani).

It's really quite cool how just last month the town was draped in black, and now it's bursting with colour. It's beautiful. You can't help but feel the joy.

Click here to see the rest of the photos (there are lots more).

Of course, what would a photoset be without kids:

As you can tell, I quite like all the brocade material draped everywhere. Here are a couple details if anyone cares:
