The mosque is an easy drive from Larnaca town centre or there are various tour buses that go there. The mosque is on the edge of a massive salt lake, and sits within palm fringed gardens. As you enter the grounds the first thing you notice is the cats, and I dont mean one or two, I think I counted around 20 or more. Cute if you are a cat lover like me, but for others possible a little annoying. The entrance is via an arched doorway and you have to remind yourself that it is a place of worship not just a tourist site. Architecture is not stunning in any way the stonework is well preserved but no great masonry to talk of. Down various stakes and passageways amongst olive, pommegranate, citrus trees and date palms leads to the mosque itself, You are required to remove your shoes to enter otherwise there is no objection to non-muslims entering. It is a quiet place, quite austere but there is something of reverence about the interior. No attempt has been made to put up placards for the tourist a further reminder that this is a holy place for muslims where the Prophet Mohamed's auntie is supposed to be buried there.
Down a passage away from the mosque there is an earlier site of what looks to be something from the bronze age but again there is no placard to explain what it is.
