New Jamatkhanas for Calgary, Canada & Atlanta, USA

Ismailimail is elated to share recent news of two new Jamatkhanas approved – one each for the jamats of Calgary in Alberta, Canada and Atlanta in Georgia, USA.

These [Ismaili] Centres serve to reflect, illustrate and represent the community’s intellectual and spiritual understanding of Islam, its social conscience, its organization, its forward outlook and its positive attitude towards the societies in which it lives.”

– His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan,
Foundation Ceremony, Ismaili Centre, Duhsanbe, Tajikistan August 30, 2003

Calgary's new NEJK-1

We share some of the details on the Calgary Jamatkhana that we had shared earlier. Currently, details on the Atlanta Jamatkhana are not available, but as more information becomes available, we will share them promptly.

The building design and materials are reminiscent of the Great Mosque of Cordoba using grey brick placed in strips as accents along the facades.

The main floor of the Jamatkhana will consist of the prayer hall and the ante room, social hall and library.

The second floor will include administrative offices and boardrooms.

The third floor will include a number of classrooms for the educational component of the Jamatkhana.

The prayer hall has been located to ensure that its orientation is facing towards Mecca, in accordance with religious tradition.
