Mosquée Noor-e-Islam, Saint Denis

Mosque Noor-e-Islam is a significant mosque in Saint-Denis as it is the oldest on the whole island. The Mosquée Noor-e-Islam's story starts in the early 1890s, as a result of the decision of Gujarat's traders to build a place to worship. On November 28, 1905 the mosque was inaugurated. Not surviving a fire in 1974, it was rebuilt completely in 1979, with a minaret 32 meters tall and weighing one ton as its main feature. Classic-styled, the mosque features a courtyard, a pool and a prayer room with a capacity of 500 seats. The mosque's interior design is predominantly white and green.
