Incredible footage of a massive Cambridge mosque being built from the foundations to its golden dome has been released as reported by Cambridgeshire Live.

The time-lapse film takes just over a minute but shows the amazing progress of the huge Islamic centre in Mill Road.

The progress of the stunning multi-million pound prayer and study centre is seen in the footage from November 2016 to October this year.

It is the first purpose-built mosque in Cambridge and is dedicated to the spiritual and social welfare of the city’s estimated six thousand Muslims, according to the project website.

The mission statement adds: “It will also serve as a cultural bridge fostering greater understanding between communities and have a strong educational component, providing an infrastructure and support for learning and research.

“As a major international city, Cambridge deserves a proper facility for Muslims which will enhance its prestige and provide an architectural focus attracting new visitors.

The Cambridge Mosque Trust will not follow or expect adherence to any particular school of Islam and will welcome worshippers from every part of the Muslim family, of both genders.

“Reflecting Islam’s contribution to contemporary debates over sustainability, the mosque will incorporate significant design features which will minimise carbon emission and emphasise the role of faith in promoting responsible management of the earth’s resources.”

The mosque will hold 1,000 worshippers.

Construction started in 2016 and is expected to be handed over to the Muslim community in November 2019.

There will be no minaret, and no call to prayer broadcast outside the building.

The new building will incorporate up to 80 parking spaces, and designated space for 140 bicycles.

There will be a café, teaching area and meeting rooms for use by the local Muslim and non-Muslim communities.
