Hala Sultan Tekke in Larnaca – the 3rd holiest place for Muslims in the world
Friday, September 01, 2017
 

Hala Sultan Tekke or the Mosque of Umm Haram is a Muslim shrine on the west bank of Larnaca Salt Lake, near Larnaca.

Umm Haram was the wife of Ubada bin al-Samit, a companion of the Prophet Muhammed.  The present-day complex, open to all and not belonging to a single religious movement, lies in a serene setting on the shores of the Larnaca Salt Lake, which appears to be an important site also in prehistory. Hala Sultan Tekke is a listed Ancient Monument.

Professor George E. Bowen, a senior Fulbright scholar at the University of Tennessee, is quoted as referring to the Hala Sultan Tekke as the third holiest place for Muslims in the world.

During the Ottoman Empire, Ottoman-flagged ships would hang their flags at half mast when off the shores of Larnaca, and salute Hala Sultan with cannon shots.

Today, this is a landmark area on the island, a monument which underlines the multicultural character of our country.
