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

  • 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.

  • Nice Mosque with a great placement near the Larnaca Salt Lake. It also has some ruins of an old placement on the left extremity of the inner courtyard. You can stop before reaching the Mosque in a small parking place near the road, where you can take pictures of the Mosque and maybe some flamingo birds (from October to May).

  • 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 😃

  • 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.

  • Butifull and intersting place. If you in Cyprus... must to see. 😉
