Grande Mosquée de Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso 

Built in 1893, this mosque is an outstanding example of Sahel-style mud architecture, with conical towers and wooden struts which both support the structure and act as scaffolding during replastering efforts. Visits take you inside the building and onto the roof terrace, where you’ll get a different perspective of the towers.
