Tripadvisor has two mosques under the attractions of Georgetown, Guyana, and both are rather unimportant and not even located in the city proper. 'Providence Mosque' is in the community of Providence, well known for its stadium, and about 10km to the south of the capital. The 'Vreed-en-Hoop Mosque' is in the town of that same name, on the western shore of the Demerara, thus on the opposite side.

If there is a mosque worth mentioning in Georgetown, especially since its two tall and octagonal minarets are visible from far, it is the Queenstown Jama Masjid in the district of Queenstown, which we passed, when walking along Church Street with its canal on our way to the Botanical Garden. The mosque looks quite new and in fact it is just a few years old, replacing a wooden structure, once erected by Afghan Muslims at the end of the 19th century.
