Aga Khan Trust for Culture leading reconstruction works in Djennè

Reconstruction works in Djenne

In early November 2009, exceptionally strong rain fell on Djenné. At first the mosque, whose superstructures were drenched, seemed to hold up well. However on 5 November, the upper part of the South tower of the East façade collapsed, leading several tons of laterite mud to slide onto the East terrace. The organization Aga Khan Trust for Culture is leading its reconstruction with the support of international experts and local workers.
