Hala Sultan Tekke - Review

You  wouldn’t expect a place like this to be one of the most important sites in Muslim history, but there you go. Umm Haram, foster mother of the Prophet Muhammad, died and was buried here. Even before this, more than four thousand years ago, this site was the location of a major Bronze Age settlement with its cemetery where the mosque is now. Surrounded by a beautiful park, the mosque itself is tranquil. When you arrive, take off your shoes and pace yourself – there is no need to hurry here. No single religious movement oversees this place now, but it’s a religious place nevertheless. Be respectful. They say it’s the fourth most important historical site to Islam. If you want pictures, try and catch the reflection of the mosque on salt lake for shame really good shots.

Hala Sultan Tekke, Larnaca Reviews

  • A mosque located in the banks of a salt lake. Setting is very impressive, as the lake was completely dry. The 37 degree Celcius, heat must have something to do with that. I imagine that in the winter when the salt lake is a body of water the setting is equally impressive. Back to the mosque, not impressive as mosques go, and no tour guides to give you the full history. Having now looked this up, the place has seen some traumatic history, but hasn't the island as a whole? There are the remnants of some historic buildings preserved under a refurbished structure, but no explanation as to what they were and who built them.

  • As I heard this was one of the most sacred Muslim places, I was expecting masses of pilgrims or tourists. Nevertheless, the place was calm and nearly without people. In Summer, I recommend trying to walk on the bottom of the nearby salt lake.

  • Certainly interesting, but gravely la king any information boards. Obviously run by a religious authority, not the tourist board !

  • Part of my bus tour on the Love Bus. I only had a few days in Cyprus so this was a great way to get in some of the sights.

  • Very basic mosque but maybe best historical place to see around Larnaca. Lots of cats around to protect from snakes.
