Jummah Mosque, Port Louis

4.3
An active and busy mosque hosting important figures throughout the year, Jummah Mosque shows visitors the beauty and diversity of life on the island. Built in 1850 on Royal Road, and with additions throughout the century, the structure gracefully blends Indian, Creole, and Islamic influences. Feel free to step inside the inner courtyard to view this exemplary model of religious architecture, except while the mosque is in use on Fridays and during the month of Ramadan. Jummah Mosque is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Port Louis Edition.

    Halfway between the market and Chinatown, the city's most important mosque, recognizable by the Green and white façade. Excellent condition and priceless atmosphere thanks to the culture of tolerance of civilized Islamic community of Port Louis.

Where to stay in Port Louis

Port Louis doesn't have a huge range of places to stay--and the city is not the most bustling after dark. Still, you'll find a couple of options here and there. On the waterfront, a few viable luxury lodgings offer amenities such as annexed seafood restaurants, bars, and air conditioning. Alternatively, head farther down the coast for numerous better value options in dedicated tourist resorts. Even relatively small fishing villages have some decent homestay or guesthouse lodgings.
