Panama, because of its historical reliance on commerce, is above all an ethnic salad bowl. The Muslim community is relatively small in Panama—approximately 10,000 members. Most of them are businessmen doing business in the Colon Free Zone. Some have traveled to Panama City and have opened modest used car centers.
There are two mosques in Panama City. One is located in the neighborhood of Bellavista and the other one in the neighborhood of Vista Hermosa. In an effort to save gas, I shot several pictures of this house of prayer which is near my residence.
This is an example of an Islamic mosque in Panama City, Panama. Here we go.
All these pictures were taken yesterday morning at approximately 09:00 a.m. (-5 GMT). It was not the best hour to take pictures, but I had other chores to do. Good Day.
