Denmark: The Nusrat Jahan Mosque
Built in 1967, the Nusrat Jahan Mosque is the first mosque to have been built in Denmark. It is located on the outskirts of Copenhagen and is used by members of the Ahmadiyya faith, a particular branch of Islam.
While having a more humble capacity of 100 people, it is one of Europe’s more architecturally interesting and modern mosques.
