The Kongo mosque, South Coast, Kenya.
Source of information... Juma Suleiman the caretaker..
900 years ago, Omani traders who were unusually tall (around 11 to 12 feet tall) built the Kongo mosque which occupies part of the 18 acre land allocated to the mosque. (I personally find the height exaggerated.)
The unique mosque overlooks the Indian ocean and lies few hundred meters from the River Kongo which flows into the ocean and divides the Tiwi Beach from Diani Beach. The river I understand is a bird viewer's paradise, and unfortunately has not been advertised well enough as a tourist spot.
The mosque was discovered 300 years ago by Sheikh Kombo vide a vision which led him to an area encapsulated by baobab trees which today are around 500 years old. He then discovered the mosque.
The mosque is built from coral stones and the "cement" was basically burnt coral pounded into powder.
Coast’s historic Kongo Mosque
Welcome to Kongo Mosque. Believed to have been built and used by early Arab merchants for prayers as they toured the East Coast in the 14th Century, Kongo Mosque is said to be the oldest mosque in
Eastern Africa. No one knows the architect or even who exactly built the mosque, which was previously referred to as Diani Persian Mosque.
