Anchorage's diversity as whole is often mentioned but, this article highlights a unique slice of that diversity; the diversity that can be found at Anchorage's mosque:

"While many mosques in U.S. cities are tied to a single ethnic group, Friday prayers in Anchorage might draw Gambians, Pakistanis, Albanians, Somalis, Sudanese, Egyptians, Palestinians, Iraqis, Bangladeshis, Burmese, Russians and Malaysians, among others."
