The Mosque is situated in the Malindi district of Stone Town close to the harbour entrance. The mosque is an old structure and like most of the buildings in the town it is not well kept.

On foot you can see almost all of the city, with safe little alley ways, souvenir delights and sites from a deep cultural history. One of the gems to include on your walk is the old Malindi... More

This is the oldest mosque in town. The place is very busy with people coming in and out all the time. It's not that hard to find this place. From where the ferries goes, just walk the opposite way to the town center, and you will be on Malindi Street. From there it's the first right at the mini-market and... More
