No one thinks while observing each side of the building so grand mosque turned out to be made of mud. This is the majesty of the Great Mosque of Djenne Mali perched on the ground.
City of Djenne has a close relationship with gold trading system, salt and other items. As well as the city became a center of Islamic learning.
The mud mosque was built in 800 AD, is located right on the edge of the Bani River.
Mali nations struggled to build this mosque. Unfortunately, Amadu tribe had demolished a mosque because they want to compete with the building of the mosque.
Finally in 1907 the mosque was built majestic architectural style with a touch of the Sudan and the Sahel.
All the side walls of the mosque are made of hardened mud with the help of sunlight. Mud is very easy to absorb sunlight.
