Just like churches speak in the Vatican, Yemen speaks through its mosques. The Al-saleh mosque boasts of being the largest and the most architecturally well-built modern mosque of Sana'a. Named after the Yemeni President who built it in 2008, the proposal of this mosque received a lot of flak due to the amount spent on it. But, once it was built, it quickly rose to become a jewel in Yemen, lighting up the night sky. It remains to be a popular tourist spot due to its awe inspiring design and beauty. This mosque is symbolic of the country's potential for modern development.
