Which preposition is appropriate?
1. I go to offer prayers in the mosque in my neighbourhood.
2. I go to offer prayers in the mosque of my neighbourhood.

Or what could be the best substitute please?
Best regards!

Dawood, I would prefer:

'Mosque IN my neighbourhood'. I would because I would see the noun mosque as I would car, house, tree, etc. All IN.

Thanks a lot. You've been very knid.
I also doubt whether "in the mosque" is correct or should that be "to the mosque'?
Best regards!

Apologies, I hadn't noticed that...actually it should be 'offers prayers AT the mosque in my neighbourhood'.
Thank you very very much for your kind help.
Best regards!
