This shrine is dedicated to Umm Haram who was the Islamic prophet Muhammad's wet nurse. She may have died and been buried here; alternatively Shia belief states she was buried in Saudi Arabia. The mosque is now open to all and is in a very lovely setting. The salt lake is spectacular and at the right time of day and... More

We decided to visit Hala Sultan Tekke one day. We tried to find the best route to get there from Makenzy area, but there is no bus that can take you there and the best way to get there is by taxi or rent a car. Despite all this, we decided to give it a try and walk. It was... More

Hala Sultan Tekke is worth a visit even if you are non-religious. The place is stunning, the building is beautiful, and you don't necessarily have to worry about your clothes (you SHOULD cover up), as they provide capes and scarves for those who need them. It is free to visit and there's a toilet visitors can use.

Adjacent to the salt lake near Larnaca International Airport. During the winter months the lakes are habited by pink flamingos and other birds that winter there. The mosque complex was built during the Ottoman administration of Cyprus, around the tomb of Umm Haram who was prophet Muhhammad's wet nurse and the wife of Ubada bin al-Samit. Umm Haram, being of...
