Djenne Travel Guide: 75 reviews and 210 photos

Djenne is situated on an island in the Bani river. The entire city is a UNESCO world heritage site, as the city is almost entirely built of mud.
The most famous building in Djenne is for sure the misque, which is a beautiful example of this mud architecture.

    i don’t understand that, some time you are allowed in Mosques and some time you cant go in. I think rules change with geography and time.
