Situated on the perimeter of the salt lakes in a peacful location. Built by Ottomans and rated the fourth most important place of worship for moslems. Transport is needed to get there but there are buses if you havent hired a car.

Great place to visit, have a read of the history before you visit as no info on arrival. Scarves are available for ladies, advised to dress appropriately as place of worship.

I have been to Hala Sultan Tekke on a number of occasions, with difference visitors, and every visit is a joy. It is a serene and very special place. It has lots of atmosphere. Even if you are not Muslim, you can enjoy the special quietness and uniqueness. Walk around the building. Take in the scenery. Do not rush your... More

This is just a mosque in close proximity to the salt lake. Not much to see unless you are a Muslim in which case it is one of your religious sites to visit. If you have not been into a mosque before then may be worth a visit just once to say you have been. Otherwise we have seen much... More

Very quiet and peaceful. It is well worth a visit. Tombs included that of Mahommed's Aunt and the Grandmother of King Hussein, although travel books do not always mention that.

The Mosque/shrine itself is a little building and a discreet attarction but the scenario with the salt lake makes it very photogenic and is a little oasis in the desolation of the salt plain. To get there follow the airport signs and find a roundabout where you have to turn back as is in the other side of the road... More

We go to Larnaca frequently and always visit this lovely building. It is a haven of tranquillity, cool, dim, and refreshing. The little prayer mats are interesting - watch out for the one showing Tom (cat) chasing Jerry (mouse) with a mallet! How religious! Anyway, it's a nice place, so don't miss it, as it is one of Larnaca's attractions... More

The history and the story of the Tekke is more appealing than the building itself. It should be seen for the sake of history but I can not say it is an extraordinary place.

It was calm and peaceful place and part of the walkway going around the saltlakes. Lovely views of the Salt Lakes and it is very near the airport so you can visit it easily. Some historical archeological stones can be seen also
