The mosque is right in the center, the Islamic centre gives a lot of knowledge if one needs to find about Islam or Halal shops near by.

Don't spend more than 2 hours here , the area is great and nice. I prayed here and walked around for sometime. It's nice to learn about the culture at this centre

A great place to visit for both muslims and no-muslims alike.

Plenty of eminent people from the centre for non-muslims to go to and ask as many questions as they like. A really welcoming and open environment.

As a Muslim, I attended during a brief stay in Kowloon for Iftar (or to break my fast) during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. I was pleasantly surprised at just how many Muslims were present for Iftar - must've been close to 1000. Mostly if not all local business owners or labourers.

The place was full of families, enjoying the food provided by the mosque via community donations (fresh fruit, dates, juice, water, chicken stew, fried samosas and pakoras etc), followed by prayers in a really pleasant air-conditioned, well lit, beautiful prayer hall stretching over a couple of floors at least.

There's a real community vibe about this place, witnessed by events immediately following prayers. Mangoes, tea, dates and other snacks were being sold on the gate by vendors.

Given its proximity to Kowloon Park, the inevitable over-spill and family atmosphere at night in a well lit garden environment was a real sight to behold. A great community feeling emphasising the importance and significance of this landmark for the local community.

Hong Kong is a better place as a result.

We were surprised to find such a large mosque in central Kowloon during our stroll along Nathan road. It was busy with devotees conducting or finishing evening prayers. We managed to take a peek at its interior which reveal a prayer hall. We learnt that the existing structure was a replacement of the original built as early as 1896. We did not take any photos of the interior and people out of respect.

My friend and me were just hanging out in the area, when the imam noticed me looking at the mosque and invited us in to take a look at the building and a prayer ceremony. I felt that the short tour was very informative and modern. Arriving to Hong Kong from China, it was definitely refreshing to see a massive diversity in cultures, religions and ethnic groups living in harmony.
