Djenne Architecture

Djenné is famous for its architecture, with nearly all of the buildings in the town, including the Great Mosque, made from sun-baked earthen bricks which are coated with plaster. The traditional flat-roofed two-storey houses are built around a small central courtyard and have imposing facades with pilaster like buttresses and an elaborate arrangement of pinnacles forming the parapet above the entrance door. The adobe bricks are made on the river bank using a wooded mold and a mixture of earth and chopped straw.
Islamic Landmarks
The Great Mosque of Djenné is by far the town’s most famous and important landmark. While the splendid exterior can be seen by visitors, the interior is off-limits to non-Muslims.
