Ancient Hausa Masjid in Kano, Nigeria. West Africa
Originally built in around 100 bce as a temple-university for the indigenous Hausa divinities called ishoki (similar to orisha or neteru). After the Hausa royalty began practicing Islam in the 10th-century ce, this temple-university to the ishoki became a masjid.
