Atlanta's Muslim community is celebrating the opening of their largest mosque this week.
The Al Farooq Masjid cost more than $10 million to build and took more than ten years to complete. It is located in midtown near the neighborhood known as Home Park.
The 46,000 square-foot mosque has a minaret that's nearly 150 feet high. The golden dome is 65-foot high and the main prayer hall can accomodate 1,100 people.
Muslim leaders estimate there are more than 80,000 muslims in metro Atlanta. The region also has about 35 mosques.
