‘Mosque’ by Harvey Lisse
This is the Mosque in the Keizerstraat in the centre of Paramaribo.
Famous because it stands side by side with the “Synagogue Neve Shalom” of the Surinamese Jewish Community.
It dates from 1984 and stands on the site where a mosque in traditional Surinamese timber construction was already realized in 1932. The Keizerstraat Mosque is owned by the Surinamese Islamic Association (SIV), which follows the Ahmadiyya movement.
Did you know that of all the countries in South America, Suriname has the highest percentage of Muslims?
