  • It is a mosque. Located in Hannam-dong, Seoul, South Korea's first Muslim in a country support for erecting work and grounds, May 1976 by providing a dog where they wanted. Guess where this man on the second floor of the historic born Chapel, divided into three-story women's-of course we listen to worship is indeed gone, but there are so many Muslim around showing people were also trying to hold the camera to take pictures of exotic temples look as well. In South Korea, where you can feel the difference.

  • Korea selatan merupakan negara dengan minoritas muslim, sehingga masjid hanya 1 disana yaitu di daerah itaewon. Untuk berjalan menuju ke sana agak menanjak. Di sekitar daerah ini kita bisa menemui ban...  more »

  • The primary mosque in Seoul. There are many restaurants selling halal cuisine nearby, which is convenient for Muslims as well as those wanting to taste halal food. It's a bit hilly but still doable for most people to reach there.
  • It takes about 15 mins to walk from Itaewon Station to this mosque. Take Exit 3 and just walk straight ahead. When you reach a large Turkish shop on your right, turn right. After this just ask anyone where the masjid is. There are many Arabs around here and they are very helpful. There are many steep hills around here and you need to walk carefully. Many Halal restaurants can be seen along the way, predominantly Indians and Turkish. I came here during to holy month of Ramadhan and had the chance to attend Iftar and Taraweeh. All food are given out free. Dinner is served after Maghrib prayers. Very nice and friendly environment over here. I met Arabs from many countries, Malaysians, Indonesians, Myanmars, Turks, Britons etc. There are also a few Muslim Koreans. This mosque has a traditional Islam look. Inside you can see beautiful tiles and Quranic verses.
  • Beautiful mosque. The facilities are old but useable. It's a long walk to the mosque itself and there's a long flight of stairs to the female prayer room. The rules on how we dress is placed at the entrance. From the mosque, you can see a nice view of the city. Sadly, it doesn't open 24 hours like the ones in Singapore. I happened to drop my wallet there during ishak and I came back when the mosque was closed. The security was kind enough to open the mosque for me. I'm very grateful for that.
  • Beautiful mosque, it's clean, it is located on high terrain so we can see its surrounding nicely. One thing i would like to suggest is that the wudhu's area is better to have information whether jamaah should take their shoes off or on. I've prayed Duhur and Ashar today and looking forward to have jumah prayer next day
  • It's a very good mosque but has a space constraints especially for Jumah. Try to reach early if you are planning to visit for Jumah prayers.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
