When you arrive to the Larabanga Mosque, you should go to pay a fee to visit the atraction, after you should pay the guide. You can not go inside, but the guide give you a good explanation about the history of it.

4kms from Mole Motel. Definitely worth seeing this 15th century mosque. But nothing else special in Larabanga.

The mosque was rather small, and rather poorly maintained. It was not impressive in any way but its age. Also the villagers were very pushy on visitors, and every one is a guide. Make sure you have arranged with a proper guide before you arrive.

We paid a local guide to tell us about the Mosque but at the end we were hit up for contributions to the community. I read about this part being a scam just to get more money out of tourists. Who know what to believe...More

Claimed to be the oldest mosque in Ghana, it is certainly worth a visit and a wander around the village. A local will latch on to you to guide you around and for us this was OK.
