Kenya, a vibrant country in East Africa, is home to countless religious sites. These places provide peace, tranquility, and serenity – essential things missing in our busy lifestyles. These places have an aura of their own. Here’s a quick look at some of them.

Jamia Mosque, Nairobi

Jamia Mosque – This is the largest and one of the most important mosques in the nation. It acts as an important centre of Islamic practice in the East and Central African region. The mosque was constructed by a pious individual named Syed Maulana Abdullah Shah during 1902 to 1906.

ACK Mombasa Memorial Cathedral, Mombasa

Mombasa was principally occupied by Muslims in the bygone era. However, with the arrival of Vasco de Gama, the scenario changed. Many Portuguese Christians settled in the city. Sometime later, the ACK Mombasa Memorial Cathedral came into existence! It is a spectacular Anglican cathedral and resembles a mosque with its white walls, arches, and cupola dome.

Makindu Sikh Temple, Makindu

The Makindu Sikh Temple was established in 1926 by the Sikhs who were working on the production of the Uganda railway line from the coast (Mombasa) inland to Lake Victoria and beyond to Uganda. It’s a ‘must-see’ place for tourists, especially Sikhs visiting Kenya. There’s a large dining space, which provides free langar 24 hours a day. Tourists can put up in the rooms for a maximum of two nights.

Nairobi Lighthouse Church, Nairobi

The mission of Nairobi Lighthouse Church is to ‘reach out and impact the world around us with the love and the message of Jesus Christ’. On 15th March, the church opened its doors to the first congregation of 9 adults and 13 children. In a short span of time, it has grown to a church of 3,000 people.

Shree Jain Temple, Mombasa

Built in 1963, the Shree Jain Temple is a wonderfully decorated white marble structure with statues, gold spires, and silver doors. There are statues of Shantinath, Neminath, Parasvanath, Mahavir Swami, and Simandhar Swami here. Abishek (religious ritual) and poojan (worship) are held every day. On the auspicious Jain days, special poojas (worship) and aartis (religious rituals) are conducted. Religious heads from India are invited twice a year to this temple.
