Kizimkazi Mosque



The Kizimkazi Mosque is believed to be the oldest Islamic building on the East African Coast, and it is still in use today. It is located on the southern tip of the main island of Zanzibar in the village of Kizimkazi – Dimbani. According to the record, it was built in 1107 under the order of Sheikh Said bin Abi Amran Mfaume al Hassan bin Muhammad by settlers from Shiraz, Iran. However, another inscription tells of a major rebuilding of the mosque in 1772-1773. Although much of the coral detailing and column shafts date from the original construction in the twelfth century, the majority of the current structure is from the rebuilding in the 18th century. More recently, the east wall of the mosque has been reconstructed and the roof of the mosque has been replaced with corrugated metal. Around the mosque are several seventeenth-century tombs decorated with pillars, one of which notes Sheikh Ali bin Omar, a man with one arm and one leg.
