A fresh new look has finally emerged at Old Kampala hill, reshaping the skyline to the eastern part of Kampala city, courtesy of the National Mosque. The new National Mosque, is the cause for renewed hope and celebration among many of the three million members of the Muslim community.
The mosque is the new source of attraction in Kampala, and day or night as it can be seen making a commanding presence from most, if not all, parts of Kampala. The gigantic and magnificent building is brightening up the Old Kampala surroundings from any vantage point of the city you are standing in. It faces the east of Kampala, capturing a clear view of the city centre.
During President Yoweri Museveni's inspection of the mosque on June 15th, the Libyan project and site manager, Engineer Majdi M. Abdulhadi, said the mosque is the largest mosque in Africa.
