Admire the interior decor and get a sweeping view of the city at Gaddafi National Mosque, a modern skyscraper mosque on Kampala Hill.

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.
