  1. Kuze Jamatkhana still holds so much beauty and architecture, the entrance doors, very much like the one in
    Nairobi downtown Jamatkhana, have always admired these two JK’s, I pray they will always remain there.


  2. Kuze Jamatkhana is a very special place. The Baitulkhial hall has a very calming effect.
    The balcony looking out has so much history. The smell of barotti poles, sounds of off loading Dhows.
    The muezzin’s call as we all join in prayer.
    The once Library was my favourite haunt. Next to the little Duka owned by “budho”
    Whose name we never learnt.
    A sage space to wonder, buy “jugu, bisi, daria” from an open basket. Aroma of “asmini” from the near by vendor, her asmini displayed on banana leaves.
