    Mopti mosque, architecture

    by sachara Updated Jan 28, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The grand mosque of Mopti is built in 1933. It looks like it is built in the same Sudanese style in which the mosque of Djenne is built. The mosque has the same wonderful sculptural forms. In reality the mosque is built with bricks with a layer of mud.

    Mopti, Grand Mosque

    by sachara Updated Jan 28, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you approach Mopti you see the silhouet of the large mud-brick mosque at your left hand side at the opposite of the water. The mosque is towering over the old city.

    The mosque is enclosed by the surrounding houses, so you have only a good view of the mosque from some distance.

    River Market

    by gmg61 Written Dec 12, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The market of Mopti: real Africa. On te banks of the Niger river where its waters melt with a tributary, big blocks of salt are aligned. They have traveled for thousands of Km's to arrive here: from inner Sahara to Timbouctou with camel caravans, and from Timbouctou along the river to Mopti. Close to the blocks, wmen sell smoked fish.

    Mopti: three different attitudes

    by chrisvandenbroucke Updated May 2, 2004

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a picture I'm very proud of - it summons up the feelings of the local women towards tourists.
    The front woman says 'Dare take me'
    The second one says 'Don't you dare'
    And the third one says 'Pay if you dare'

    Mopti women

    by chrisvandenbroucke Updated May 2, 2004

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world (I think it's number 5) but you wouldn't believe it when you see the women passing by on the streets.

    They look well fed, not tiny....but this must be a typical Western opinion

    Mopti: the big mosque

    by chrisvandenbroucke Updated May 2, 2004

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Near the mosque we gave a little boy 300 CFA (he wanted 500) for taking us up to the nearest terrace from where we had a good view on the mosque.

    The money wasn't worth the effort: the sight wasn't terrible.

    Even the mosque is, compared to many others in Mali not worth a visit. The lower half is not in mud-brick but in concrete....
    so, skip it and don't waste time and money on it

    Trip down the river

    by Svillegas Written Nov 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most pleasure full thing of Mopti was sailing with a pirogue through the river. There nothing more peaceful, there’s no noises apart from the birds and the water.
    You will be able to see one of the nicest landscapes, the small villages that are at the bank that are surrounded by water after the raining season. It makes that every family has a pirogue to being able to go to the city and going to their neighbours’ houses.

    The market

    by Svillegas Written Nov 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mopti has everyday a very big market where the first product sold is fish (dry, smoked, fresh), but you can find everything spices, food, everything!.
    There’s also a zone where there are men doing pirogues, it’s quite interesting.

    This is where they fry the little fish that aren't worth to sell. It's for their own use... and they are delicious

    During one of the walks in a little village, I saw this huge fishing net
