Great Mosque of Djenné
Leave the dress whites at home when you visit Mali's Great Mosque of Djenné, the largest adobe building in the world. The first mosque was built on this location in the 13th century, with a variety of incarnations following throughout the centuries. Unfortunately, non-Muslims are no longer allowed to enter the mosque following a Vogue photo shoot of scantinly-dressed women in the mid-1990's that sparked local outrage. However, the structure can still be admired from the outside while you troll through the adjacent marketplace that has sprung up in the mosque's shadow. You're guaranteed to go away impressed and perhaps with a bargain to commemorate your visit as well.
