The canals that flow quietly alongside the border town of Chau Doc, are all tributaries which feed the Mighty Mekong River.The Cham Muslim people have made these backwaters their home .The Masjid Al Ehsan lies riverside ,the treasured heart of their community. White domed and marble tiled tranquility offers respite from the heat and bustle of the thronging markets that lie on the shores near-by.Small childern learn to write up the Korans tenets in Arabic script,I am informed by an aged gent we met whilst sojourning there...here in this town at the meeting point of two largely Buddhist countries..Cambodia and Vietnam. Masjid Al Ehsan, through whose arched windows one can stare off into the marshy fields of the Mekong,is a destination most worthy!
3. Jamiul Azhar
