Fascinating connection between East and West
Nicolas de Pigage built the mosque with its central construction, two minarets and prayer halls between 1779 and 1795. The models for this exceptional piece of garden architecture were the garden mosque by William Chambers from Kew Gardens in London and in particular the designs of Johann Fischer von Erlach. The combination of occidental and oriental architectural language is fascinating. Thus, Baroque domes, ogival windows and rounded archways are found alongside minarets, pavilions and half-moons.
