Religious, Spiritual sights in Niamey
- Sort by:
Rising above eastern Niamey is the impressive Grande Mosquée, with its massive minaret and bulbous green dome. Everything from the elaborately carved exterior wooden doors to the interior's 16 ornate pillars and grand tiled dome were financed by Libyan money. If you linger outside, someone will offer you a short tour. The view and breeze atop the minaret are well worth the dizzying 171 steps to get there.
