Les mosquées en terre de la région de Tahoua
Les mosquées en terre de la région de Tahoua is part of the Tentative list of Niger in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The earthen mosques of the Tahoua region were influenced by architectural typologies from abroad, for example from the Arab world. They were designed by the “architect-mason” Elhadj Mamoudou and his apprentice Elhadj Habou. Their Yaama Mosque won the Agha Khan Award for architecture in 1986. It has a domed roof.
