Fodor's Expert Review A.C.K. Mombasa Memorial Cathedral

Following Nkrumah Road from Fort Jesus will bring you to this impressive Anglican place of worship (A.C.K. stands for Anglican Church of Kenya). Built in 1903, the cathedral is a memorial to Archbishop James Hannington, a missionary who was executed in 1885. The influence of Middle Eastern Islamic architecture is clear in the frieze, the dome, and the tall, narrow windows. The paneling behind the high altar is reminiscent of the cathedral in Stone Town on Zanzibar.
