Jamia Mosque

sights / Architecture

Lonely Planet review

Nairobi's Jamia Mosque is a lovely building in typical Arabic Muslim style, with all the domes, marble and Quranic inscriptions you'd expect from an important Islamic site, and the traditional row of shops down one side to provide rental income for its upkeep. Sadly non-Muslims are very rarely allowed to enter, but you can happily examine the appealing exterior from the street.
