“국내 최초이자 최대의 이슬람사원이다. 이슬람교 한국 선교의 총 본산인 이곳은 1970년 한국 정부로부터 부지를 지원받고 세계 이슬람 국가들의 지원금으로 지어진 건축물이다. 1920년대 투르크계 무슬림들이 국내로 망명해 정착하기 시작한 것이 한국 이슬람의 시초라고 할 수 있는데 최근 이슬람 국가의 이주 노동자가 급증하면서 이곳을 찾는 무슬림도 계속해서 증가하고 있다. 뿐만 아니라 이국적인 분위기의 사원을 카메라에 담으려는 내국인들도 많아서 가벼운 마음으로 찾아가도 좋다. 국내에는 모두 9개의 이슬람 사원과 60여 개의 임시 예배소가 있으며 이태원의 서울 중앙성원에서는 ‘술탄 마드라사’라는 이름의 무슬림 학교도 운영하고 있다.

“My favorite Alabama style barbeque restaurant. My kids love the food there. There may be a long line for a table so make sure to get there early.
