The Prominent Gaddafi National Mosque in Uganda

September 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

About the tour

Locally & popularly known as the “Gaddafi National Mosque”, this Muslim place of worship was renamed as the “Uganda National Mosque” in 2013 following the death of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi of Libya who commissioned it as a gift to Uganda, and for the benefit of the Muslim population. Uganda has many mosques but this one is a skyscraper mosque. It was completed in 2006, and officially opened in June 2007 under the name Gaddafi National Mosque. It houses the head offices of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, seats up to 15,000 worshipers and can hold another 1,100 in the gallery and 3,500 on the terrace. One can view all the seven hills that make up the capital city – Kampala on the Minaret! Join us for this tour as we learn more about this place of worship, all the beautiful decorations in the dome and all the interior; watch the city from the minaret, and other activities done at this special place of worship. Muslim brothers and sisters are encouraged to join us! This tour will be guided in International Signs by Noah as well as in English by Rosemary!
