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.

Easily accessible, the road to the mosque is exceptionally tranquil and scenic as you drive alongside the salt lake. The mosque was very peaceful and has a real sense of serenity. I believe it is closed on Fridays for prayers but open all other days.

Wash your feet outside in the fountains, go in to see a well preserved mosque from pre occupation days. I challenge you to find such a well preserved orthodox church on the other side.

A special place. The care taken of the building was not apparent in the surroundings. Had difficulty finding the access road.

Very interesting site on the edge of the Salt Lake. Well preserved structure with pleasant walks all around. Big colony of feral cats around the mosque, fed and watered by volunteers. 5 minutes from Larnaca airport

This mosque has really great location. Surrounded by high palm trees looks really great. Unfortunately I couldn't get inside cause of praying people. There were also many many cats around :) I really love the way to this mosque.

Unfortunately it was closed when we visited, but the outside alone was worth the visit, very attractive the views from the lake. It is a complex made of mosque, mausoleum, minaret, cemetery, and living quarters for men and women. History accounts for a very old story of this Mosque, setting a connection between the place and the death of Muhammad's... More
