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.

  • Well worth a visit. But most tourist come to visit the colony of cats. Locals come and feed them. The Mosque is also ok.

  • A little cute place with a nearby dried out lake. It was an experience to walk through somewhere there water had been before .

  • A holy place for Muslim religion, with a positive energy felt by any man, regardless of religion, when he steps into the mosque. Certainly the woman who is buried there is a saint and she pours her positive energy on any man, regardless of religion. An objective that should not be missed if you visit Larnaca!
