Roundabout Mosque

It has been somewhat challenging finding information on the roundabout mosque in Kuwait City. On Google Maps it is called “Al Shamlan,” but the book Kuwait in Pictures: Visual Geography Series calls it “Al Hilaly” (see below). This Kuwait Times article about roundabouts mentions the mosque. An aerial image of the mosque is included in an 1969 National Geographic article about Kuwait. The illustration of the mosque and final photograph come from The Kuwait Urbanization by Saba George Shiber.
