The Express Cover Feature

The Punchbowl Mosque has been featured on the cover of an issue of the The Canterbury-Bankstown Express headlined “Mosque a Masterpiece”.

The mosque was unveiled recently as part of the Sydney Architecture Festival and director Tim Horton said it was a “remarkable work of architecture”.
