Red Mosque

The Colombo Red Mosque, also known as Jami Ul-Alfar Masjid, is a true architectural masterpiece that will amaze you with its stunning vibrant colors and unique design. The Red Mosque has now become a peaceful haven from the busy streets and endless traffic. This popular mosque is located in a busy town, Pettah, which is approximately less than 4 kilometers away from the heart of Colombo city. 

The red and white colors painted on the entire mosque are structured to resemble the interior of a pomegranate, symbolizing both its spiritual significance and its eye-catching appeal. This candy-striped structure, standing as the oldest mosque in the area, not only serves as a place of worship but also as a striking landmark that can be seen very well over the nearby residences and busy streets.
