Union mosque, Mogadishu

4.0
#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in Somalia
The largest religious site in the Horn of Africa, with a capacity of over 10,000 people, Union mosque also represents an important cultural site for the people of Somalia. As the name suggests, the mosque symbolizes multiculturalism and mutual respect between Somali citizens. The building near the Indian Ocean is fairly new, having been built in 1987, but nevertheless stands out as a remarkable example of traditional eastern architecture.
