Vintage plate 2018

Located at the foot of the mountain in the eponymous village, it is the spiritual heart of one of the two most important brotherhoods in the country, and the same as the identity of the Sudanese of "the East". Mohammed Osman Al-Khatm founded his brotherhood on the return of a trip to Arabia. Built in the th century, the mosque of the brotherhood (tariqa) Khatmiyah retains its beautiful ensemble of colonnades and its octagonal minaret of dry bricks. The building also houses the gobbat (dome) of Seyyid Hassan Al-Mirghani, the son of the order founder. The tomb of this sheikh to the reputation of being impervious to rainwater, despite the gaping hole in the ceiling… If ever you go into the corner during a shower, do not hesitate to check and send confirmation (or denial) at Petit Smart. Officially, non-Muslims have the right to enter it, despite refoulement in our passage. Outside, dates, seeds of all kinds and bondieuseries await you. Don't be surprised if people ask you to take them in photo. it does not seek a priori financial contribution. On the other hand, the children of the corner are a little sticky…

To go to the mosque, take a minibus from the mawgif al-a'am to the villages of Khatmiyah and Totil (50 bucks) and roll for 10 minutes. The minaret and dome are visible from the road.
