Larabanga Mosque

Mole, Ghana

Larabanga Mosque is believed to have been built by Moorish traders, during the time of the trans-Saharan trade in the 13th century. A copy of the Holy Koran (Islamic Holy Book) is believed to have descended from heaven and is still preserved in the mosque. This unusual and widely-photographed mosque is an example of Sudanese architecture.
