Masjid al-Qiblatayn Mosque, Saylac

4.0
#6 of 6 in Historic Sites in Somalia
See Masjid al-Qiblatayn Mosque, the city’s oldest Islamic site, dating back to only a few decades after the Hijra of Muhammad. Every year, crowds of devotees flock to see the final resting place of Sheikh Babu Dena, which is inclidued in the site. Although the ancient building is partly in ruins, you can still clearly see the two "mihrabs" (Muslim prayer niches)--one facing Mecca, and the other facing Jerusalem.
