Serene place of prayer

This mosque is at the top end of West Street where 5 daily prayers take place, I visited to prayer not for tourism but a tourist will appreciate the architecture and design

A rather old building refurbished to an excellent standard. A fully operation Masjid ( Mosque). Really worth a visit.

Frequenting the West Street Mosque for prayers means a lot to me as I find it a place of tranquility in the heart of the city.

Peaceful and relaxing place in the old Indian quarter. Must visit for all travelers to Durban independently from religion confession. But please mind your saferty - central Durb is not really hospitable place. Virtually it is a ghetto. P.S. Parking can be a problem as well.
