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.
  • We had a quiet visit on a Thursday afternoon. Only one other person was there besides the guard. We had to show our Covid safe pass. It was free. Fun to look around!
  • One of the holiest places of islam in the Mediterranean, definitely a very beautiful place with amazing nature around it. There are specific openings hours to get inside but even of its closed its wort s visit. Amazing place to see the sunset and take pictures with the reflection of the salt lake. There are even flamingos in the lake during their migration period.
  • Nice mosque, beautiful view. Remember to cover your knees when entering, shorts are not allowed. They do not provide anything for you to cover
  • Beautiful mosque and can be easily combined while visiting the Salt Lake. When visiting make sure that both men and women are appropriately dressed. Long pants for both and arms covered. There are no facilities to buy this around.
