My favourite view in Cyprus

Easily accessible. Peaceful . Very small area of ancient site as well as the mosque itself. Looks beautiful viewed over the salt lake.

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.

The drive to this passes the salt lakes which is worth a visit. This is of huge importance to the Islamic Faith as the tomb of The Prophet Mohammed's step Mother is here. There are also newly uncovered ancient ruins.

An awkward place to find but worth the trip for the antiquity and history of the place. Although there are some excavations of the original buildings there is no information on them

Benefits from money poured in by EU & US, pity that its followers don't follow suit. Many Christian establishments are desecrated in other parts of the world as a result of fanatical Islamists.

Totally worth the long walk in the heat. The place is still and tranquil, the floor covered with beautiful carpets. You might not meet a single person, so you may want to bring your guidebook to tell you about the history.

This is a particularly important shrine for the Muslims, the Mosque of Umm Haram, the wet nurse of Muhammad. It is found on the shore of a large salt lake, the gentle breeze of which makes it also a pleasant place to walk around.

Its a great walk in between the salt lake in the middle of nature. Why not walk it from Larnaca city like we did?
