There is a Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu temple in Nairobi which is extremely beautiful, with intricate details and religious artefacts.

The Grand Mosquee in the ancient town of Djenne in Mali is a magnificent structure, with stunning architecture to behold.  This mosque was built in 1820 and is made entirely of mud bricks. In fact, this mosque is the largest mud brick building in the world.
