  • The mosque looks beautiful in an otherwise pretty derelict neighbourhood. Very nice combination of white and green in design.  more »

  • A place in the city centre where you find peace and tranquility even on busy days. Jummah Masjid is a place of worship for Muslims. A visit is a must.
  • This is one of the oldest Mosque in Mauritius. Built in 1853, the Jummah Masjid is an architectural marvel. It also contains the mausoleum of one of the greatest Saints in Mauritius, Syed Peer Jamal Shah who came from India to teach Islam.
  • Once inside the beautiful mosque it feels as if you're in very remote destination.
  • Calm in the middle of the madness of Port Louis. It's a beautiful masjid, well maintained and is well worth a visit.
  • Magnificent historical architecture. Peaceful courtyard.
