With a rectangular floor plan, Jumma Masjid remains the largest and oldest mosque in Mozambique. Made of stone with lace-like floral ornaments and geometric shapes on the facade, the mosque represents a mix of Portuguese and Arabic architectural styles. Inside, white chandeliers oversee a wall-to-wall Persian carpet with red oval spots designating furrow-like places for prayers.
