Ivory Coast: Yamoussoukro – Yamoussoukro Grand Mosque

Not far from the largest church in the world – Basilica of Our Lady of Peace – stands the Yamoussoukro Grand Mosque, also built by Felix Houphouet-Boigny, the Ivorian President that ruled for 34 years. Snow-white In color with five beautiful square minarets, it is very ornate with lattice-work walls and arches. It is currently under restoration.
