(3.9/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We visited in December with two small kids, was quiet and open for visitors. Just a short walk around and visit inside. And kids got some candies, there very happy:). 
  • Building of the 7th century, dedicated to "paternal aunt" of the Prophet Muhammad. Probably a nunnery in the past, although within the structure doesn't seem to live any monastic community.

  • Such a peaceful place.we were welcomed by plenty of cats and the beautiful flamingo around the lake. The mosque is well maintained and looks like coming out from a fairy tale
