Juma Masjid Mosque

Juma Masjid Mosque

The grand Juma Masjid Mosque was the first mosque to be built in KwaZulu-Natal, starting construction in 1881 and continuing with renovations and improvements until 1943. One of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, its minarets dominate the central Indian district of downtown Durban, and the muezzin that calls the faithful to prayer from its tower can be heard from many parts of the city. Around the mosque is a bustling neighbourhood with takeaway curry restaurants that offer the distinctly Durban 'bunny chow', a hollowed-out loaf of bread filled with curry; the exotic and busy Victoria Street Market; as well as many small shops selling fabric, saris, jewellery, and more. The area is easily accessible by bus or taxi, but visitors should be wary of pickpockets and travel in groups.
