Central Mosque of Cape Coast and the Central region of Ghana. Constructed at a strategic location of the Kotokroaba Market) (pre-1900 and improved upon over the decades), the mosque has a great presence as part of the important structures of this historic native, colonial, and modern city. As the market and automobile lot serving the market expanded over the years, the mosque has become very central to the Kotokroaba Market where many of the stores that stretch on the roadside are Muslim-owned.
