  • Mosques in C√īte d’Ivoire

Some of the most important mosques in Abidjan are: The Treichville Mosque, the Cocody Mosque and the Plateau Mosque.

C√īte d’Ivoire ancient mosques are unique in shape and structure. The mosque in Kong is the most fascinating. Built of mud, it displays a number of conical columns with wooden beams protruding out of them. The architecture is called ‚ÄėSudanic‚Äô. The wooden protrusions from the walls serve as footholds for the workers who frequently repair the walls after rains. Recently, a modern mosque has been built in Abidjan, the Riviera mosque and it seems to be influenced by the mosques in Middle East. The mosque of octagonal minarets in the city of Bouake is yet another example of diversity in mosque architecture in Cote D‚ÄôIvoire. The onion domes over the minarets resemble the domes of Kremlin buildings.
