The Al Fateh Mosque (Grand Mosque) is a beautiful example of architecture.  The mosque was completed in the early 1990's and is named after Ahmed Al Fateh, the leader of the Al Khalifa tribe, who took control of Bahrain from the Persians in 1783.  The Al Khalifa family is still the ruling family in Bahrain.  The composition has the flag of Bahrain in the foreground.
