The Larabanga Mosque in the Northern part of Ghana serves a tourist attraction to the people in the community.

It is the oldest mosque in west africa as it was established in 1421.

According to the old people in the town, there was a Mallam in the town who brought an idea to the people in the community to build a Mosque. When they started the construction at the foundation level, the building expanded overnight which came as a surprise to the whole community.

They realxed to see the movement and development of the situation, with Allah being so grate the construction continues overnight for days until its completion.

They sent praises to the most High for such a wonderful work. When the Mallam died, he was buried just closer to the mosque and few days time a tree grew on top of the grave whiles others say beside his grave.

That is why the people of Larabanga cherished the Mosque so much.
