Larabanga Things to Do: 9 reviews and 33 photos
Every two years the mosque needs restoration. Being of adobe construction, the rains cause untold damage to the mud bricks. Hence the little wooden poles sticking out of the walls. A large group of local people help in the restoration project, using mud and cow dung to rebuild the walls, then whitewash them. This project was taking place while we were there, and although we have seen several adobe mosques before and heard about this bi-annual reconstruction, this is the first time we have actually seen it for ourselves, and we found it very interesting.
