  • 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.

  • Peaceful place to be, near to china town and the central market. They also have female prayer rooms. I love this MASJID  more »
  • Authentic mosque which has kept the original architecture. Well maintained. Located in a busy street but very calm inside. A big fish pond inside.  more »

  • A peaceful place to perform your prayers
  • 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.

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.
