Almost every year Muslims in Mexico City perform Eid al-Adha prayers at the Deportivo Plan Sexenal, which is a sports center for local residents that offers a variety of activities for the whole family, with complete facilities and well-being maintained.
Reportedly, the building of this sports center used to perform prayers, was accidentally built in the direction of the Qiblah, which facilitates the performance of Muslims in congregation.
