Admire the interior decor and get a sweeping view of the city at Gaddafi National Mosque, a modern skyscraper mosque on Kampala Hill. Completed in 2006 as a donation by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, this spacious mosque can accommodate up to 15,000 people under its copper-plated domes. Slim colonnades and vaulted ceilings hung with huge chandeliers make the mosque a pleasant place to reflect. Home to the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, it serves as the center of Uganda's Muslim population. Climb the main minaret's swirling staircase of 300 steps to get an impressive panorama of Kampala.
