"Hala Sultan Tekke" Larnaca Favorite Tip by Aggeliki
Larnaca General: 12 reviews and 17 photos
Favorite thing: Hala Sultan Tekke is about 5 kilometers west of Larnaka, on the banks of the Salt Lake. It is equivalent to the Christian "monastery". Within the precincts of this Tekke is the tomb of Umm Haram, said to be the foster mother of Mohammed. According to Muslem tradition Umm Haram died on this spot in 647 A.D. while accompanying the Arab invaders. She was buried here and later the Ottomans built the present mosque in her honour.
