This looks amazing, I love the block use and it looks extremely faithful to the real thing.

My only complaint would be that the use of foliage on the mosaics looks a bit too busy. I mean, it's a mosaic of plants, not actual foliage, so it should looks more flat than that. If it were me I'd tone it down a tad.

Thank you. Well the BuildtheEarth project uses a mod that allows builders to determine the exact location of places across the world. With real life coordinates and elevation we were able to find out the size and structure of the mosque :)
