Mosquée Soudanaise ou Missiri

Avenue du Musée des Troupes de Marine

This prestigious monument is a replica of the Sudanese mosque (“missiri” in Bambara) of Djenné and was built in 1930 following the pagoda by the Senegalese infantrymen. For them, it was a source of pride that restored a clean atmosphere to heal those who were “homesick”.
Owned by the Ministry of Defence, the monument, visible from the outside, is open to the public from 1 July to the 3rd weekend of September.
