    Mosques and gubbas

    by uglyscot Updated Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nowadays when so many Sudanese are working abroad,especially in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, every village has a mosque built by their expatriate sons. The style of mosque varies from place to place.
    Sometimes the village will have a gubba too- a conical shaped tomb in memory of a holy man or sheikh. These are very noticeable from the road, and indicate a village is ahead.

    Al Baghair

    by uglyscot Written Jan 31, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Al bagair was the first industrial area in Sudan about 42 km outside Khartoum. It was a complex of industries related to agriculture whether milling, canning, bottling cola, or other agriculture related
    produce.
    It is set back off the main road in a flat plain, so only the gleam of metal constructions are visible from the road. Inside there are factories and housing for the employees.
    Advertising hoardings also abound approaching Bagair.
