For an example of a mosque, see here:
View in JOSM/iD to see imagery in Bing.

No don't tag place=neighbourhood just use landuse=residential.
Assigning a place tag (which indicates a form of administration)
in these areas are very difficult.  There are cases where it looks
like a small village given our assumption in other areas but it turned
out to be
a town center.  To avoid such confusion, just do a generic
landuse=residential tag.
