Each mosque on our earth is covered with carpets, which display prayer niches – Mihrabs. These Mihrabs in the carpets repeat the niche in the wall of a mosque indicating the direction of prayer (kibla) and are in line with their direction. Each believer takes place on one of this Mihrabs to pray there.
The following foto shows such a carpet very well in The Süleymaniye Mosque (Turkish: Süleymaniye Camii). This mosque was built from 1550 to 1558 by the Sultan’s Süleyman – The Magnificent – Court architect Sinan (The Poet of Stones) on the third of the seven hills of Istanbul.
The pattern of the here offered Hereke silken rug is based on these carpets in mosques.
