“So happy the Hala Sultan Tekke has won an award”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

I have been to Hala Sultan Tekke on a number of occasions, with difference visitors, and every visit is a joy. It is a serene and very special place. It has lots of atmosphere. Even if you are not Muslim, you can enjoy the special quietness and uniqueness. Walk around the building. Take in the scenery. Do not rush your visit. Sit and relax and contemplate. A very special site.

“Hala Sultan Tekke”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

This is just a mosque in close proximity to the salt lake. Not much to see unless you are a Muslim in which case it is one of your religious sites to visit.
If you have not been into a mosque before then may be worth a visit just once to say you have been. Otherwise we have seen much more ornate mosques in the Middle East where we worked.

A picturesque mosque that is open to view to all. (Please wear respectful clothing) Some great views out across the salt lake.

“Interesting mosque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Very quiet and peaceful. It is well worth a visit. Tombs included that of Mahommed's Aunt and the Grandmother of King Hussein, although travel books do not always mention that.

“Nice place on beautifoul scenario”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

The Mosque/shrine itself is a little building and a discreet attarction but the scenario with the salt lake makes it very photogenic and is a little oasis in the desolation of the salt plain.
To get there follow the airport signs and find a roundabout where you have to turn back as is in the other side of the road from town to the airfield
