The architects behind the UK’s “first green mosque” say the building will be a “cultural bridge” for Islam in Britain in the 21st Century.
Cambridge Central Mosque, in Mill Road, cost £23m and has capacity for 1,000 worshippers.
The mosque opened for prayers at midday on Wednesday after more than a decade in the planning.
Spokesman Dr Abdal Hakim Murad said the “global city” of Cambridge had been “slow off the mark”.
