Places in Abuja - Cultural sights


National Mosque

This building is one of the most beautiful places in Abuja. It is located opposite to the National Christian Centre on the Independence Avenue, in the Central Business District, which is found southward to the ring-road. It was built in 1984 and stands out with its huge gold dome and four tall minarets. The mosque is open to non-muslims during non-prayer times, and in it there is a library and conference room.

National Christian Centre

Located also at the Independence Avenue, Central Business District, the National Christian Centre (also known as the Nigerian Ecumenical Centre) has a great masterpiece of a glinting copper-coloured roof, with pivotal arches, huge organ, and a choir rehearsal room. It also has a marble central altar floor which completes a rotation every ten minutes. This Centre has an 8,000 congregational capacity, with tours at non-prayer times.

Three Arms Zone

This zone is found off the Shehu Shagari Way, in the Central Business District and consists of three peculiar areas:

The Presidential Complex

This is where the president of the country lives, alongside some offices. This building is popularly known as the "Aso Rock", and is also an interesting place in Abuja.

National Assembly
