This mosque is also known as the Mosque of Umm Haram on the banks of the Salt Lake, Larnaca. I made a special effort to visit this Mosque and thought it very charming. As you would expect, the Salt Lake area it is built on, is very stark but that adds to the isolation and charm of the Mosque. There is also a small, archaeolohical site at the back of the Mosque. For me, the most unexpected and wonderful aspect of the site was while walking towords the Salt Lake you happen upon a group of small trees where prilgrims have tied "wish or prayer" string, ribbons, pieces of plastic bags to the vegetation. They reminded me of the "prayer trees" you find at Holy Wells in Ireland where people leave something like string or ribbon tied to tree as a petition or request the Holy Well is dedicated to. There is also a desiginated path around part of the Lake so if you parked your car at the road enterance you could walk to the Mosque.
