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
Beautiful mosque set in the most beautiful location, right on the edge of a salt lake. As the sun sets you can see the reflection of the mosque in the lake. There's an aura of calm in and around the grounds of the mosque, a most surreal feeling indeed.
Very interesting place to see while you're on Cyprus. It is a nicely located mosque with free entrance and historical site near by. Check out how many cats are walking near the car parking area, you'll be amazed by this 😃
I visited it just before sunset and it was a great time, as it's by a lake which is a nice walk in the evening. Park your car at thr lot by the lake just when you start seeing the mosque and take the lake side footpath there, as when you drive all the way up there you probably won't see this lakeside walk. Lots of cats everywhere - if you like cats it might be useful to bring food and water for them as they look under eaten and very slim. I saw loads of dry cat food there though which they didnt seem to like but didn't spot any water.
A superb place for cat lovers. Also, an important place for islam. A calm, religious feeling engulfs you there.
We visit the place late March this year. The flamingos were already gone and the Salt Lake was starting to dry out. The mosque itself it's an interesting place to visit, full of stray cats looking not so great, unfortunately, but if you're not Muslim (I'm not) I don't think you'll have the same precious experience. But for me it was the first time I've visited a mosque so it was worth it. Also hearing the muezin singing was great! I asked if I could go up there, in the tower, but ofc it's prohibited :)) well, i tried! :))
