The mosque stands on the edge of the salt lake. During the winter months the flamingoes take refuge. The mosque is a place of pilgrimage for Muslims because it is said that Mohammed's aunt was buried there. It is so peaceful , surrounded by lovely gardens and palm trees.

The moskqu is not very interesting even if you get the woman to tell you about it. You can make a nice photo of it from far away on the ither side of the salt lake. The lake is dry in summer but you can walk around it. Takes about three hours.

It sits between the salt lake and an impromptu cat sanctuary, both of which are more interesting than this mosque. Although it has a very interesting history, those who have seen much more ornate places will find this one a let-down.

This is definitely a place if interest to visit. It is old and has major history of the Muslim faith. There is a very famous lady buried there. You need to cover if you are female as a mark of respect for their faith. It is in a beautiful setting on the far side of the salt lake in Larnaka.

Best viewed from a distance- very pretty when seen across the salt lake. But the ugly fence and excessive CCTV just make you want to... walk on by. Pity, it could be as good as some of these reviews make it sound!

Great to walk on the salt lake to reach the mosque and admire it under all its angles. Lovely story as to why it was built!

the mosque design was unique to the era that it was built and that was something that i appreciated. however, a little bit more information about the mosque would have been better.

This was our second stop on our small trip around laranca. We arrived at 6pm,unfortunately the mosk was closed. So we couldn't get inside. But the mosk is nice placed beside the salt lake and has beautiful souronding, like an oas. Real calm and nice place.
