I was really disappointed with this little mosque. It looks far better from a distance - across the lake - than it does 'up close and personal', and far better from the outside than on the inside. The interior looked so 'shabby' that I just couldn't bring myself to take a picture of it.

It's well worth visiting this mosque, both for its significance and its setting, although I was a little disappointed that the surrounding gardens were looking a bit shabby and neglected. However, it was late January so perhaps it looks nicer in the spring. The salt like was very busy with flamingoes and the view across the lake to the mosque... More

A great place for contemplation. Quiet. Lots of atmosphere. Walk around the gardens outside. Take in the scenery.

This historical and holy site is a testament to the Greecypriots' respect to their heritage especially after 1974 and the division of Greek-Cypriots and Turkish-Cypriots. I am not a Muslim. I visited a week ago after many years and found renewed respect for this place and what it stands for. Set in the most picturesque area of Larnaca it's worth... More

You can get there on foot, on a bike, by car or by bus #424. It is close to the airport. Unless you chose a car or a bike getting there is not easy. Mosque is quite small and unless you are religious there is not much to see. The best thing about this location is the lake. You can... More

This fine Mosque is positioned on the West bank of the main Larnaca salt lake and has wonderful views of the 3000 plus flamingo's which are present this time of year. Hala Sultan is a very interesting place to visit and has a lot of history. If you get the chance to visit this peaceful location you will not be... More

Well, you need a car, or taxi, and if you are not going to pray there then I wouldn't recommended it.

After doing a lot of research online and reading reviews decided to definitely visit Hala Sultan Tekke when visiting Cyprus. We were staying in Larnaka for a few nights, me and a couple of friends decided to go. We did not want to take a long bus journey so we eventually found a taxi company who was willing to take...
