By climbing the Kano Wall, I had a nice overview over the other buildings in the Museum of Traditional Nigerian Architecture.

In the Museum you can find two mosques, the Ilorin Mosque and the old Zaria Mosque. The Zaria Mosque is a interesting building with a small Muslim museum inside.

At the entrance of the mosque sat a picturesque person with an ostrich feather in his hair. ''I'm Professor Musu Kingsley'' he said and gave me a note " See you daily in our temple''. The mosque was his temple, he explained.

Directions: The Museum for Traditional Nigerian Architecture is near the National Museum, about 500 M south-east of the trainstation.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
