Palm Tree mosque is the second oldest place of Muslim worship in South Africa and is brimming with history. Previously home to freed slaves Frans van Bengalen and Jan van Boughies, who bought the property in 1807 after leaving the Auwal Mosque which was around the corner, now stands the Palm Tree Mosque which was established in the early 19th century.

The property was left to Van Boughies widow after he passed away at the good old age of 112 and asked her to continue to use the place as a mosque.

You will find this fascinating place of worship on Long Street in Cape Town amongst the shops and restaurants and will notice the palm trees standing tall in the front garden.
