Photos of Djenne’s Mud Mosque and Monday Market

A small selection of photos of Djenne’s, in Mali, mud mosque and scenes from the Monday market.

The mosque, the largest of it’s kind in Mali, was built in 1907 and the outer walls, which wash away with every rainy season, are re-rendered each year in a huge event in which the whole village takes part.

The market is the largest in the region and attracts people from far to trade their goods.

  2. just like to say well done for what you are doing,
    It must be an amazing trip.
    I am looking at going from london to cape town on a motorcycle.

  3. In the days leading up to the festival, the plaster is prepared in pits. It requires several days to cure but needs to be periodically stirred, a task usually falling to young boys who play in the mixture, thus stirring up the contents.
