Wooden mosque in Asaita area, Danakil, Ethiopia

This mosque made only with wood is in the area of Assiata, in Afar territory, in Ethiopia. I only saw two mosques like this in Danakil. The minaret is also in wood, and at the top, the moon also! Most of the visitors are afar people who are nomads and pass in this place when they wander with their camels.
