"THE CENTRAL MOSQUE" Top 5 Page for this destination Somalia Things to Do Tip by DAO

Somalia Things to Do: 29 reviews and 86 photos

The Central Mosque dominates the centre of Hargeisa. It’s a fairly new building and the pride and joy of the town. Having said that you need to be very careful about getting close to and/or taking pictures of it. Like their neighbours across the water, Yemen, they do get defensive about it. The friendly smiles you get all the time can evaporate in a few seconds. Make sure you are with someone who is a local if you do want to see closer. You will see a lot of visitors from the Middle East coming to pray here.
