The basic idea behind this site is to act as a
depository of postage stamps, first day covers, miniature sheets, proof sheets, postcards, currencies and coins with an emphasis on
mosques. The intent is to try and list as many stamps as possible from
mosque theme. I am doing specialization in mosque stamps. I started the
stamps collecting hobby when I was 10 years old. My father initiate
stamps collection hobby. Apart from stamps I am collecting coins,
currencies & Antiques.
I am an expert in mosque
stamps theme. Merely a collector trying to do a bit service to the
society to know about mosques. I have tried to be careful while
attributing the stamps. But mistakes are still bound to happen. Please
