Al Bidyah Mosque is built of stone and mudbricks and is coated in many layers of whitewashed plaster. Architecturally, Al Bidya Mosque is somewhat unique in the UAE. Its distinctive structure and espically its roof, consisting of four pointed domes and supported by an internal pillar is unusual for religious architecture in the region. The prayer hass has small mihrab and a simple minbar according to the radiocarbon analysis. The date of construction of this mosque maybe as early as 1446 AD.
The Middle East Peace Edition of the World Wide Panorama is a cooperative effort by VR photographers living in United Arab Emirates (UAE), Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt. We have organized, worked together and produced QTVRs that are linked together. Our message is clear, we cannot ignore each other any more since we all benefit from peace. This is our way to contribute to the Middle East peace efforts.

The members of this family are (in alphabetical order): Eldar Sharir (Israel), Fadi Saikali (Lebanon), Loyd Almeda (Dubai), Rana Mahmood (Dubai), Samir Ahmed (Dubai), Waleed Nassar (Egypt) and Yaniv Sirton (Israel). Thanks go to all participants for contributing to this effort, to Samir Ahmed for designing and wiring the flash in our QTVR's, and to Waleed Nassar for coming up with the idea of this edition.
Canon 300D, Sigma 8mm Fish Eye lens, Lens Fix and Panotools from Kekus.com was used to correct the distortion, Realviz Stitcher 4.0 was used to stitch the panorama.
