About Hala Sultan Tekke, Larnaca

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.

  • I've given 4 stars, because the entire place is nice to visit and definitely for Muslims people the mosque means a lot! Indeed, there are a lot of cats. A colony. It's ok that people feed them and take care of them. But could be creepy to see a lot of cats... during the winter, we can see flamingos in the salt lake.

  • Take the lovely walk by the Salt Lake to reach it and you won t regret it. The views are awesome. Been there in February and we saw the Flamingos. The mosque cannot be visited, you can only see it from the outside.

  • Very interesting place near salt lake with a lot of cats. clean environment,lots of vegetation. In area is car parking, toilet.

  • The majestic Hala Sultan Tekke complex is one of the most important religious places of Islam. Combined with the salt lake, the wildlfe, the flora, and the 300 cats (!!!!), it creates an amazing spectacle, irrespective of anyone's religious beliefs!

  • Well kept mosque. The area is open to all and there is toilet facilities on site. The area is kept clean and tidy.
