It is the biggest mosque in the southern-hemisphere. The section of the city where it is situated is not very safe and a local should accompany visitors.

Don't visit West street.
While tourists may think it is authentic to visit the centre of town, please do not fool yourself into thinking that the loiterers are tourist attractions. West, Smith, Point, Ordinance.... not safe!

After reading the reviews on trip advisor... I was a bit nervous about the area. However I didn't let that put me off. I parked underground in the tourist market and went to a Muslim book shop passing muti sellers on the way... I love South Africa:) They called a guide and he gave me a tour of this very beautiful Mosque with a Koi fish pond inside. When people wash their hands to pray they can see the fish swimming below. Definitely worth a stop.

A landmark mosque, I believe one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere offers a peaceful retereat ironically in the heart of the city centre. Quite symbolic of the misunderstood religion of Islam, a peaceful way of life amidst the chaos of the modern world. A must stop especially for the Friday noon prayer or sunset times inRamadaan.

Theres not many places in the world you can find a haven like this in the middle of the bustling streets of Durban. It is entrenched in So much history and has a multicultural following. Which other Masjids ( Mosques ) in the World has a fountain and fish near where you make ablution?

Since I enjoy visiting mosques during my travels, I asked my tour guide, Bheki, to include a visit here when we were going to be at the Indian Street market. It was not prayer time and the mosque was closed yet after we waited a few minutes, the caretaker appeared and took us in and showed us around. It was a very peaceful, serene place and worth seeing.
