 This is the Larabanga Mosque, located at Larabanga in the Savanna Region of Ghana. It is a mosque built in the Sudanese architectural style, built in 1421 (exactly 600 years ago). It is the oldest mosque in the country and one of the oldest in West Africa, and has been referred to as the "Mecca of West Africa". 


According to a history, in 1421, an Islamic trader named Ayuba had a dream while staying at the location of the mosque, near a "Mystic Stone", instructing him to build a mosque. Strangely, when he awoke, he found that the foundations were already in place and he proceeded to construct the mosque until it was completed.


The mosque has an old Quran, believed by the locals to have been given as a gift from heaven in 1650 to Yidan Barimah Bramah, the Imam at the time, as a result of his prayers.
