The Central Mosque in Accra (in this picture) was constructed in the 1970s to serve the Abossey Okai Muslim community. Since the 1980s following the burning and demolition of the Central Mosque at the central market at Mokola, the Abossey Okai Mosque has served as Central Mosque for Accra. This mosque and another at Cow Lane in the capital attract large crowds for Friday prayers.
