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...

Either you are muslim or not, Hala Sultan Tekke, is one good choice to visit when you are in Larnaca. Tradition says that, Umm Haram, being of very old age, had fallen from her mule and had died during a siege of Larnaca.

The mosque is more beautifull from far when you see it behind the salt lake in a heat hase. It's a view to see absolutely. The place is peacefull and fresh, thanks to the beautifull gardens and fontains.

It's very quite and peaceful place. Not much to see though. The road to the Mosque lays along the Salt Lake and from the opposite side the Mosque, surrounded with palms and other trees, looks like a paradise in the desert :)

Interesting to see, but nothing special. They propose cloaks for women, if they, for example, have open shoulders.

The Mosque is nice and the adjacent salt lake is beautiful. It is worth the trip, about 5 Kilometers from the beach front in Larnaca.

Such a tranquil setting and a very important part of history. You do not have to be Muslim to visit here as it is a popular tourist attraction for all visitors. Well worth putting this on your list of "places to visit"

I would not recommend to visit the mosque. You won't miss anything if you won't visit it. It is very small and in 20 minutes you've seen everything.

It's a nice little mosque, nothing very special to see other than the fact it is where the foster-mother of The Prophet is buried. If you are biking around like we were, it was certainly worth stopping at.

Unusual place to visit, but you can see it across the Salt Lake from the main road running from the airport into Larnaka. Not much to see, but interesting if you have a bit of time to spare.
