The Hala Sultan Tekke, is a nice peaceful location, overlooking the salt lakes. In summer you can walk over, as I write this 9th November the lakes are filling, and the Flamingos are just starting to arrive (normally stay over winter). The Tekke itself opens at around 9am, closes around 5/6pm. Entrance is free, but you will get approached by... More

The mosque is not impressive, but I am not a history/museum traveler. The nearby salt lake could be very nice at sunset. The mosque is very close to Larnaca airport, so if you have an hour or so before your flight you can go there, instead of waiting at the terminal.

Located few klms away from the airport and on the way to Larnaka, this mosque is worth visiting. The location is so peaceful walking distance away from the Salt Lake, the mosque has been reconstructed and preserved by the Cypriots. At the far left side of the mosque lays the tomb of the Wet Nurse of the Prophet Muhammad. Mosque... More

This is well worth the walk to view and is open most days except Fridays. There are busses to the entrance to the Lake Park area.

May I correct "kerk" that there is no such thing as "" North Cyprus"" unless he refers to the occupied northern part of the Republic of Cyprus which is a full member of the EU and the United Nations. He is right however that this holy place for moslems is worth a visit with respect for such a sacred place... More

I visited Hala Sultan Tekke as part of hosting some friends visiting from Europe who wanted to see it. I am not a specialist but the Tekke itself is not an extraordinary building. It looks well maintained though, and it has its historical significance. The surrounding area is quite interesting though, as the salt lake and the rather dry area... More

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
