Walewale is a small town and the capital of West Mamprusi district in the Northern Region of Ghana.[1] Walewale lies on the main road from Bolgatanga to Tamale, at the junction of the dirt road to the village of Nakpanduri.

Walewale's mosque, built in 1961 on the site of an earlier mud-and-stick mosque, is notable for its Moorish tower.[2]
