Macau Islamic Mosque and Cemetry
The Macau Mosque, constructed in the early 1980s, is situated in a pleasant, historic quarter overlooking the reservoir and Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. It is believed that the Macau Mosque was built by Muslims serving with the Portuguese army recruited from regions such as Goa and Mumbai. The adjacent cemetery is another place of historic interest, and serves as the last resting place of several Parsi and Muslims of various origin. These graves - some of which are over a hundred years old - further attest Macau's claims to multicultural tolerance throughout the centuries, and is historic proof of the Islamic link to the territory.
