Sunni Mosque at the Cape Coast suburb of Abura (with minaret) is located side by side an Ahmadiyya Mosque (white building to the left in images 009 and 011). Despite initial conflict between Ahmadis and Sunni Muslims in Ghana during the 1920s, both Muslim groups live peacefully together—an image truly represented in the picture.
