See Hala Sultan Tekke, an Islamic complex with a mosque, mausoleum, and a cemetery located alongside a salt lake. The cemetery dates back to the Bronze Age, two millennia BCE. According to popular belief, the remains of the Prophet Mohammed's foster mother also lies at the site. For that reason, it is considered one the highly sacred Muslim shrines of the world. Admire the pristine setting of the lake and the complex's subtropical landscape. To visit Hala Sultan Tekke and other attractions in Larnaca, use our Larnaca tour app.

It’s an Islamic historical place.

Unfortunately its not properly maintained and there is not much initiative to keep the place alive ! There are 20/30 hungry cats at the site and they might come in packs to request for food ! It’s very necessary that some organisation take lease of the Mosque and makes it destination of people from all around the world
