  • Beautiful mosque set in the most beautiful location, right on the edge of a salt lake. As the sun sets you can see the reflection of the mosque in the lake. There's an aura of calm in and around the grounds of the mosque, a most surreal feeling indeed.
  • Nice Mosque with a great placement near the Larnaca Salt Lake. It also has some ruins of an old placement on the left extremity of the inner courtyard. You can stop before reaching the Mosque in a small parking place near the road, where you can take pictures of the Mosque and maybe some flamingo birds (from October to May).
