We were visiting the neighborhood. We are not Muslim but a member asked us to come in, and showed us where we could watch prayers. It's huge and beautiful. A wonderful gesture.

It was a short visit, but it was really pleasant and peaceful inside. Really large, which you wouldn't think naturally. Very well designed and fits into the surroundings. Not to far from the beach, so is within easy access.

A rather old building refurbished to an excellent standard. A fully operation Masjid ( Mosque). Really worth a visit.

Frequenting the West Street Mosque for prayers means a lot to me as I find it a place of tranquility in the heart of the city.

Peaceful and relaxing place in the old Indian quarter. Must visit for all travelers to Durban independently from religion confession. But please mind your saferty - central Durb is not really hospitable place. Virtually it is a ghetto. P.S. Parking can be a problem as well.
