"Larabanga and its Mosque" Larabanga by Wafro

Larabanga Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 99 photos

Larabanga is situated 16 km west of Damongo and only about 2.5 km away of the Mole National Park.
This place is known for its ancient mosque.
It is a common believe that this mosque is the oldest mosque in Ghana.
Even the present generation think it was built by God.
The villagers built another mosque which is similar to the one on the stamp where they go to pray or worship daily.
The so-called "God built mosque" also houses a holy Koran which also is believed to descent from heaven.
This holy book is read once in a year or so during a special ceremony.
