This can be found on the Salt Lake opposite Larnaca International Airport.
It was built in 1816 over the tomb of Umm Haram, believed to have been an aunt of the Prophet Mohammed who died on this spot in 649 during the first Arab raids. The mosque is an important place of Moslem pilgrimage, ranking only after  Mecca , Medina and Al Aqsa in Jerusalem.
Look out for flamingoes on the salt lake at certain times of the year.
