Salt Lake and Tekke Hala Sultan

Recommended
It's the symbolic image of the town of Larnaca: a salt lake that fills with seawater in winter and dries up in summer, leaving a dazzling crust of salt. On the shore, there are the dome and minaret of Tekke Hala Sultan. This oratory houses the tomb of the Prophet Muhammad's aunt. No sooner had she arrived in Cyprus in the 7C, she fell from her mule and died.
