It's in town but hard to find, but locals are quite happy to assist you if you're lost. It's also quite small so if you want to go for Jummah then you should try go a little early as it gets packed quickly.

“Centre of Kenyas Muslim community”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

Located in the heart of central Nairobi, Jamia Mosque stands out amongst it's bland neighbouring buildings, with turrets and features glimpsed from nearby streets.
It's worth a look if you are in the area, just as something different to see. I had several locals asking me if I wanted to know more about the Islamic faith when I stopped to snap a few pics, so expect to be converted as you walk past!
