  • This mosque was a hot spot of our sightseeing tour. The 1816-built mosque, located on a Salt Lake, is one of the most important sanctuaries of Islam. Hala Sultan, the aunt of the Prophet Mohammed died here 647 during the conquest of Cyprus by the Arabs. The Tomb became a pilgrimage site. It Pilgrim hostels created and as we ourselves know, pilgrims on the ground are well catered for. Was put to all sides of eating us.

  • In particular, the walk is beautiful, and then to see the mosque at a distance are is a beautiful image. When we were there, there was not much to do here so it told us too little. What was impressive was the amount of cats that were in the parking lot. Once you get there attention is you're surrounded by hundreds. They are well taken care of and that you can also see.

  • Nothing special from the mosque itself. It's not the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Looks quite picturesque. And pictures interesting.
