Grand Mosque of Mopti_Mali

The Grand Mosque of Mopti (or Komoguel Mosque), in Mali, was built under French supervision from 1936 - 1943 on the site of a former mosque from 1908.
Inspired by the style of the Great Mosque of Djenne, this fine example of Sudano-Sahelian Architecture is unique in its strong vertical and symmetrical elements. 
This impressive structure has been added to the Unesco World Heritage List and is designated a National Monument by the Malian Government.
