Mauritania: Grand Mosque in Nouakchott

Grand Mosque (aka Saudi Mosque, likely referring to where the money to build it came from) is the most imposing building in the center of the Mauritania capital of Nouakchott. The sand colored building has two high minarets shooting into the sky, and the ornate building seems out of place compared to the overall shabbiness of the city. Non Muslims not allowed beyond the gate.
