DescriptionEnglish: Stitched Panorama of the Great Mosque of Kairouan, in Tunisia. This mosque, also called the Mosque of Uqba, extends over a surface area of 9,000 square metres. Founded in 670 AD by the Arab general and conqueror Uqba ibn Nafi, it dates, in its present form, from the 9th century (definitively rebuilt in 836 AD under the Aghlabid dynasty). Besides the fact of being the oldest place of worship in the Muslim West, the Great Mosque of Kairouan represents a remarkable example of Islamic architecture.
Français : Panorama de la Grande Mosquée de Kairouan, en Tunisie. Cette mosquée, également appelée mosquée Oqba Ibn Nafi, s'étend sur une superficie de 9000 mètres carrés. Fondée en 670 de notre ère par le général et conquérant arabe Oqba Ibn Nafi, elle date, dans sa forme actuelle, du IXe siècle (définitivement reconstruite en 836 sous la dynastie des Aghlabides). En plus d'être le plus ancien lieu de prière de l'Occident musulman, la Grande Mosquée de Kairouan représente un exemple remarquable d'architecture islamique.
