Abuja National Mosque, Abuja

4.4
Marvel at the size of Abuja National Mosque, an imposing gilt-domed structure with four towering minarets. Built in 1984, this modern structure dominates the landscape with its 60 m (192 ft) wide dome surrounded by 120 m (394 ft) tall minarets. Sloped exterior walls and calligraphy tiles next to the entrance gate give way to ornate crimson and gold carpets covering the floor of the mosque. As headquarters of Nigeria's Islamic community, the complex includes a library, religious school, and conference center.

  • One of the tallest buildings in Abuja. It is the national worship centre for the Muslims. It is a solidly standing structure with the best of quality. It is also very large and spacious. It is usually one of the most busy areas every Fridays. It is located in the central area of Abuja.
  • As a Mosque, it has all the comfortable facilities to undertake praying activities. From the convenience areas, to the Ablution areas, to the Prayer arena and lastly the surrounding shops, where a good buy of virtually essentials, Islamic related wears and medicinal herbs. Also, it's serene environment and learning/studying areas, makes it a place to be. I love this place, where I'd observed ITIKHAF during Ramadan.
