The spherical silver dome of Nilian Mosque defines the site, which got its name from being built on the confluence of the two Niles. The design of interior and exterior look contemporary--it was built it in 1970s.

Note the mosque's interior, which does not require colmmns inside to support the roof. Make Nilian Mosque part of your personalized Omdurman itinerary using our Omdurman travel route website.
