Larabanga mosque by 10b travelling on Flickr.Via Flickr:
The Larabanga mosque, reputed to be the oldest in Ghana, dating perhaps from 1421, is constructed in the Sahelian or Sudano-Sahelian style: mudbricks covered with abobe plaster, whitewashed and reapired regularly, with maintenance made easier by the projecting wooden beams. Next to Larabanga, famous examples can be found in Djenne and other cities in Mali (see my Mali set) and in Burkina FAso (see my Burkina Faso set) among other locations. They are beautifiul to behold.
