The Azizia Mosque is one of the oldest Turkish mosques in London, although only dating back to the early 1980s. It attracts most of the Turkish community from the surrounding areas, old and some young, along with a representative mix of Kurds and some of the Asian communities. The building was originally one of Hackney's historical cinemas, previously called, The Moorish Alhambra, and the quasi-oriental style of its faade was perhaps an attempt to replicate its Andalusian namesake. Like the Mosque de Paris, it also has a renowned restaurant.
