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.

  • It was ok, enjoyed the salty lake more. The cats at the car park were extra creepy (see photos). As for the mosque, a place that should in theory inspire love, it sure needs a lot of barbed wire and CCTV cameras around the place.

  • The overal atmosphere is bad. Lots Of barbed wire and camera's throughout the facility. The interior isn't anything special either. The only saving factor is the salt lake and the walk to the mosque. Park your car at the entrance of the road and take that 20 min walk. It's beautiful and shows the best parts of both the mosque and the lake.

  • Park a stop before this mosque. And take a walk next to the Lake as well. It's really worth it.

  • Beautiful area. Suitable for Moslem worshipers- or with a guide to explain its history

  • 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.
