Muslim Community Arch at Quiapo

This road (Globo de Oro St.) on which this arch is situated is the entrance to the well-known Muslim community of Quiapo, Manila. The community is well-known for its Golden Mosque even though it is not the only Muslim community in Manila. The arch has two sarimanok statues and three smaller version of the dome similar to the Golden Mosque but its design is somehow similar to the Chinese community arches in Binondo district of Manila. This photo was taken from Quezon Bridge while riding a bus.
