Mosque of the divinity

Mosquée de la Divinité
Courniche Ouest

A masterpiece by architect Cheikh Ngom. The story of Dakar’s Mosque of the Divinity started years before its completion in 1997.


In the 1970s, a holy man named Mohamed Gorgui Seyni Guèye had a dream about a beautiful mosque by the sea. When you lay eyes on this stunning landmark, you’ll be inclined to believe the story. The mosque is so breathtaking; the idea that it appeared as a message from God in a dream doesn’t seem so implausible. 


Everyone has their own version of a happy place. The view of the Mosque of the Divinity from the Corniche is mine. Do come here during the day and sunset for the full magical experience.
