Worth travelling 1,000 or so miles from Cote D'Ivoire on its own and 2 days of relentless bus journeys and heat. Just brilliant! On top of your entry fee you must pay for a guide (you to decide how much) but it is worth it...More

The mosque was under repair when we visited and we were asked not to take photos of the outside while the men were working on it. A guide took us inside and gave a fascinating history of this very old mosque with its unique architecture...More

As a non-muslim woman, I was fully welcomed to visit the mosque. My driver negotiated a price, and then a guide took me in. The architecture is beautiful, other-worldly. Inside, it is cool and comfortable. The visit took about 10 minutes, 15mn max. It was...More

It has some nice architecture if one hasn't seen it anywhere else before (I hadn't) and if you have a good enough guide they will tell you some interesting things about he financing (evidently the builder got money from non-Muslims as well) and other traditions....More
