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.

  • To access the site you need to cover your legs, we had shorts so were denied entry, the site is close to the town but not easy to access. Make sure you have trousers/long skirt to access the site...

  • I should start with the fact that the Hala Sultan Tekke is idyllic in a beautiful location on the shores of a Salt Lake. The Mosque can only be entered with a covered body (no shorts! No short skirts! Covered shoulders, covered knees). The garden and buildings around are well kept. The Mosque itself is beautiful on the outside, and inside you can feel the spirit of prayers. I recommend to see.
  • What a beautiful place to visit. We visited in March, the weather was lovely and cool, nice sunshine. The surroundings are so peaceful here, the lovely turquoise lake, pink flamingos, birds chirping, plenty of greenery. It’s free and hassle free entry, just need to wear mask in indoor areas. The mosque was so peaceful, great vibes all round. Must visit place for all, can spend a few hours just relaxing or perhaps a nice walk around the lake.
