About this activity

The Rangooniha Mosque in Abadan, Iran, has a fascinating history tied to the city’s oil industry. Built in 1912, the mosque served the religious needs of the Burmese (from present-day Myanmar) employees brought to Iran by the British for their expertise in oil extraction and refinery construction. These workers were mainly Sunni Hanafi Muslims, but included Hindus and Buddhists. The mosque, primarily funded by these Burmese workers, features unique architecture and decorations influenced by Hindu temples. It became a symbol of solidarity among Muslims in Abadan, attracting worshippers of various nationalities and denominations. The mosque has suffered damages during the Iran-Iraq War but remains a significant historical and cultural site.
