“A Spectacle on Fridays and During Ramadhan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This serves as the center for all the Nairobi Muslims since it is in the Central Business District. Therefore, convenient for all those working in the city. It is next to the Macmillan Library, Tropez and Nation Center (a leading national media house). Its inspiring to see all the muslims go for prayers especially on Fridays and during the Holy month of Ramadhan. The best thing is to avoid driving along the street there on those days from noon,and especially on Ramadhan when they have the road closed on Fridays.

“Curiosity”

Wanted to see inside. Needless to say as an average Nairobi woman,non muslim, I didn't get far. But what I did see was nothing spectacular so I don't think I missed much

“Jamia mosque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Very interested in visiting a mosque, it is biggest in the central Nairobi,even if you need to pay some tips to learn, but it was worth , you know how many times each day to pray, what time to pray, how cleaning when you want to pray ,many times to clean with sequence。

If not for somebody, Probably I will never learn these things. Thanks for that.

“The mosque”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

Jamia mosque is located in the heart of Nairobi city with its bustling traffic and people on the streets. It is a clean place though once in a while you get the occasional beggars outside the mosque that make one uncomfotable.
