Safa Masjid : Goa Directory

 

Lovely, Peaceful Mosque

Safa Masjid is an Islamic architectural marvel in Goa. It is situated in the Ponda city of North Goa. The mosque is a good example of the presence of Muslims in the otherwise Christian influenced Goa.

Built in 1560 by Ibrahim Adil Shah, the Sultan of Bijapur, the Safa mosque survived the bad times of the Portugal rule in the state. It is also known as the Shahouri Masjid. The mosque was located at the center of a lovely complex of gardens and fountains, the ruins of which can be witnessed today. Another attraction at the Safa Masjid is the massive water tank in its premises. The tank is located to the south of the prayer hall. The festivals of Id-Ul-Fitr and Id-Ul-Zuha are celebrated with much love and enthusiasm at the mosque.
