The Atiq Mosque (also called the Great Mosque, or al-Kabir mosque) is a mosque in the oasis village of Awjila, in the Sahara desert of the Cyrenaica region of eastern Libya. The community dates back to classical times. Since being taken by the Arabs in the seventh century, Islam has always played a central role in the life of Awjila. The 12th century mosque, the oldest in the region, has unusual conical domes made of mudbrick and limestone that provide light and ventilation.
