South Korea’s Islamic culture at Itaewon Mosque

Experiencing Korea’s diverse Islamic culture at the Itaewon Mosque

Hello everyone, I wanted to share my experience of visiting the Itaewon Mosque, a beautiful center of Islamic culture, this past weekend. Living in South Korea, is a great opportunity to experience the breath of Islam just off the bustling streets of Itaewon.

Built in 1976, the Itaewon Mosque is the center of Islamic culture in South Korea and an important place for nearly 200,000 Muslims to practice their faith. The architecture and interior design of the mosque exude the fragrance of pure Islamic art, especially the colorful mosaics, domed ceilings, and iznik tiles that adorn the walls.

In fact, before visiting the Itaewon Mosque, I had no idea that Korea had such a large and magnificent mosque, and it was an eye-opening experience for me to learn more about the Islamic culture and its followers, their lives, and religious activities in Korea.

Of course, non-Muslims are free to visit the mosque. However, care must be taken to respect and not interfere with Muslims’ religious activities during times of worship or special events. In addition, shoes must be removed inside the mosque, women must cover their heads with a scarf or shawl, and photographers must avoid taking pictures of Muslims in worship.

I think the Itaewon Mosque in itself symbolizes the coexistence of different cultures and religions in Korea, and I am very grateful to have been able to visit this place, which makes me realize the importance of understanding and respecting Islamic culture in Korea.

Finally, the mosque is highly recommended for those who want to experience Islamic culture and art in Korea. Located in the heart of Seoul, don’t miss the opportunity to experience the exchange and harmony of different cultures!
