Hi there I visited the north of this wonderful country in November. This was the middle part of my journey through Ghana as a backpacker. It is even hotter than in the south, savanna landscape replaces the rainforest, the villages are usually made of round huts with thatched…
For the history of the mosque and of the people of larabanga, you should visit the larabanga mosque. It is not just any mosque but an ancient one which is over a hundred years.
When you arrive to the Larabanga Mosque, you should go to pay a fee to visit the atraction, after you should pay the guide. You can not go inside, but the guide give you a good explanation about the history of it.
4kms from Mole Motel. Definitely worth seeing this 15th century mosque. But nothing else special in Larabanga.
The mosque was rather small, and rather poorly maintained. It was not impressive in any way but its age. Also the villagers were very pushy on visitors, and every one is a guide. Make sure you have arranged with a proper guide before you arrive.
