This Shafee mosque was the first mosque which was specially granted land for a mosque site and hence is also known as Queen Victoria Mosque as patronage of the British Crown. It is the fourth mosque and is situated on the corner of Chiappini and Castle Streets adjacent to the disused stone quarry where the first Jumu-ah (Friday Congregational prayer) was read in South Africa in 1790. Established in 1850, it is the biggest mosque in Bo-Kaap and the fifth eldest in South Africa. The minaret was constructed in 1932 and later enlarged in 1914.

All works are available as high quality prints on non-archival paper or on stretched canvas.
