The National Mosque Complex, Kanda, one of the latest additions to Accra’s skyline, has opened.
The august ceremony was graced by several dignitaries.
It has been a long road to the grand opening of a mosque whose chequered history began with the demolition of the main central mosque at the place now called Rawlings Park.
The initial Saudi interest in constructing the mosque soon dissipated giving way to some Turkish organisations taking up the responsibility of building it.
The beautiful edifice was constructed by three Turkish non-governmental organisations.
As a mosque complex, the 15,000 capacity seater mosque has a school, an office for the Imam among others and sits on a 10-acre land. The project is estimated to cost $10million Dollars.
