Reviewer karam Ramrakha from Syendy, New South Wales AU commented on a book titled  The Origin of the Mosque of Cordoba :
The Moors were nomads but when they went to Spain they became suddenly builders. This runs counter to the fact that a conqueror can only bring to a conquered country what the conqueror has in his own country... cf the Greek Romans and British. The Mosque at Cordoba has the Shakti-Chakra (six pointed star of the Hindus), which is the same as the Star of David of the Jews... this is quoted by Michener in his book Iberia...
B. Lynn Bodner wrote about The Geometric Structure of Portal and Window Grills of La Mezquita (The Great Mosque) of Cordoba and brought a photo of a Marble Window Grille, second of two found flanking a door on the northern wall of La Mezquita.
