FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- The first Burmese Muslim mosque built worldwide in more than three decades is going up in Fort Wayne.

The Mosque and Learning Center being erected on the city's south side is owned by the Burmese Muslim Education and Community Center.

The Journal Gazette reports construction of the mosque will be a yearslong process because it is being funded with donations from the Muslim community.

The first phase of the mosque will have seating for 175 people and include prayer areas and small education rooms. Officials hope that phase is finished by the end of 2014.

More than 30 mosques have been destroyed in recent years in the country now known as Myanmar.

More than 6,000 immigrants from Myanmar call Fort Wayne home.
